Ramallah: The City of Culture, Leisure & Gastronomy

The twin cities Ramallah and El-Bireh are 16 kilometers north of Jerusalem.  Built across several hills some 900 meters above sea level, Ramallah also is known as “The Bride of Palestine. “ Its pleasant, temperate climate makes it a favorite summer resort, and the town hosts dance and folklore festivals throughout the summer.

Ramallah is very well serviced for visitors, with comfortable places to stay, some of Palestine’s best restaurants, good transport and other tourism-related services, and hospitable, friendly people.

El-Bireh was first built by the Canaanites. It is known as a center of learning and for its political and cultural actives. The Friends Boys School was established here in 1886,
the Palestinian Legislative Council is located in the town, and Joseph and Mary
rested here on their return trip from Jerusalem to Nazareth.  The cool summer climate, the physical proximity of Jerusalem, and the relatively peaceful atmosphere make it and ideal break for a night or two.
