God bless you.
Meeting the local people was the highlight of the trip. The owner spent time with us explaining about the place, the city but also sharing a normal conversation. Very kind and welcoming
Important initiative for the preservation of Ramallah’s historical heritage! A great place to visit to understand the history of Ramallah and Palestine. The man who owns and runs the house is incredibly welcoming and friendly. There are also art exhibits downstairs.
