Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Jericho and cultural richness of Palestine
Located at the ancient geographic and cultural crossroads of Asia, Europe and Africa, Palestine offers visitors more culture, faith adventure, heritage and food travel experience options than perhaps anywhere else in the world. As the cradle of the world’s three monotheistic religions – Christianity, Judaism and Muslim – it has many of the most important faith and historical sites in the world such as the Church of Nativity in Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus, and St. George's Church in Burqin, the 5th oldest church in the world. The concentration of UNESCO world heritage sites is higher per square mile in Palestine than in neighboring countries in the Middle East and one of the highest anywhere in the world. The geographic diversity of the tiny territory is amazing, ranging from the Judean desert to farmlands around Jericho, the garden springs of verdant Jenin, and dramatic landscapes and mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea. All of these physical assets are overlaid and enriched by the rich mix of cultural traditions and customs, and the hospitable and welcoming nature of the Palestinian people.
