The Palestinian territories consist of two physically separate entities, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip and are not considered part of any sovereign nation. Though, since November 2012, the Palestinian Authority has been an observer-state of the UN, the West Bank (including East Jerusalem) and Gaza Strip have been under varying degrees of Israeli governance since 1967 and the final status of the territory remains the subject of ongoing and future negotiations. Much of the Palestinian territories are governed by the Palestinian National Authority (PNA or PA), a semi-autonomous state institution created in agreement with Israel and the United Nations. However, certain areas remain under official or "de facto" control by Israel or Hamas, and travellers should keep their passports and documents with them at all times and be aware of borders or checkpoints when they cross them. It is not clear what the final outcome of negotiations and status talks will be, but a majority of Palestinians and Israelis support a two state solution, creating a new, sovereign state - to be called simply Palestine and the authority is printing new stationery to reflect its new-found status at the UN. Its many ancient and modern sites of archaeological importance and religious significance make the area a popular destination for travellers and pilgrims of all kinds. The Palestinian territories, together with Israel, are considered a Holy Land for many of the world's major religions, including Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and Baha'i. Many sites of religious and archaeological significance are to be found within the current boundaries of the Palestinian National Authority, most notably Bethlehem, Hebron, Nablus and Jericho and of course, East Jerusalem.

Points of Interest in State of Palestine

Constantly disputed and at the heart of conflict in the Middle East, Palestine is home to some of the most important religious places in history and a number of fabulous, humbling sights. Here, you follow the footsteps of millions of pilgrims, you stand on grounds that saw some of the most influential fights of all time and visit some of the most important biblical and historic sites in the world.

Famous as the birth place of Jesus, the small town of Bethlehem is a must-see for most visitors of the Palestinian territories. The Church of Nativity, built over the cave where -according to tradition - Jesus of Nazareth was born, is a sacred destination for Christians and Muslims alike. From here, it's a short walk to the Shepherd's Field, where the birth of the holy child is believed to be announced to a group of shepherds when they saw the Star or Nativity. Linger on the famous Manger Square or head to Solomon's Pools, just a few kilometres out of town. Finally, head to the green Cremisan Valley and try the wine produced in the monastery there.

Where Bethlehem is known as a place of birth, Hebron is famous as the burial place for the great patriarchs and matriarchs. A holy destination for both the Islamic and Jewish people, this city is home to the Tomb of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs and was once the capital of the Kingdom of Israel. Hebron has a delightful old town, full of winding alleys and bustling bazaars and is locally known for its pottery workshops and glass blowers, making it a fine place to see some of the excellent Palestinian craftsmanship.

The ancient city of Jericho, said to be among the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world as well as the lowest (at 260m below sea level), has several sights of interest. Tell es-Sultan (ancient Jericho) is the main base for archaeological excavations in the city. Admire the mosaic floors in the remnants of the Hisham's Palace, an extensive 7th century royal complex and don't miss the Monastery of Gerasimus of the Jordan. Inside lies a cave where -at least according to tales- Jesus stayed during his 40 day fasting period.

The north of the Palestinian territories is dominated by scenic, hilly landscapes and green valleys, dotted with olive trees and villages. The old city of Nablus is well worth a visit. Wander through the narrow, meandering streets and colourful sooq, visit the soap factory or take a bath in the old Turkish bath house. For a great view of the city, climb up Mount Gerizim, right on the outskirts of town. At the top you'll also find one of the few remaining settlements of the Samaritans, as well as their temple. Close to Nablus is the village of Sebastia, which boasts some impressive Roman ruins.

Last but most definitely not least, are the famous sights in East Jerusalem. Although under Israeli rule, Palestinians see this part of Jerusalem as their capital and the UN considers it to be Palestinian territory. Either way, it is home to some of the foremost attractions in the region, most notably Jerusalem's walled Old City. A place of immense religious significance, surrounded by stories of crusaders, besieges, captures and recaptures that are told all over the world, this ancient city is sacred to Jews, Christians ánd Muslims. Here, you will find yourself on the historic spot where Jesus of Nazareth was crucified. Visit the Temple Mount with its silver domed Al-Aqsa Mosque and gold coloured Dome of the Rock. Join Christian pilgrims as they reach their destination in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Watch as Jewish pilgrims stick written prayers into the crevices of the Western Wall. Perhaps nowhere in the world will you find so many equally humbling sights packed together in an area so small.
