Tourism and Recreation in Artas
submitted by Artas Folklore Center

Located a 10 minute drive to the South of Bethlehem near Solomon's Pools, Artas brims with delights for the senses and the imagination. The first heritage center licensed by the Palestinian Authority, the Artas Folklore Center is known for its ethnographic museum and library, restored historic buildings, lettuce festival, folklore troupe and handicrafts. There is something for everyone at Artas.

If you're the active type, explore the unique ecosystem of this lush valley at desert's edge and discover the passing parade of civilizations through one of our heritage hikes and rambles. If you would rather take it easy, have a home-cooked Palestinian meal overlooking spectacular Artas Valley and Convent of the Enclosed Garden, explore the museum and wander over to the convent.

If it's entertainment you're after, attend a Folklore show. You can even do all of the above in one day. Are you going to be here a while? Why not learn how to cook authentic Palestinian meals, do Palestinian embroidery or practice your Arabic in Artas. Find out what has made Artas the most studied village in Palestine.
