Pro Terra Sancta

Pro TerraSancta is a network that promotes and implements projects for the conservation and enhancement of cultural and natural heritage, support for local communities and aid in humanitarian emergencies .

The Holy Land is the center of the world, a crossroads of people, religions and cultures. It is the land where all peoples have their roots. Participating in the work pro Terra Sancta means loving the Holy Land in places and people, it means living a lasting bond with the Holy Places and the ancient Christian communities.

Pro Terra Sancta operates in the Middle East, mainly where the Franciscan friars of the Custody of the Holy Land are present, in the places at the origin of the Christian faith and alongside the local communities.


A stay that is good for Bethlehem

The Pro Terra Sancta Association manages two charming Guest Houses in Bethlehem. The first is called Dar Al Majus which means House of the Magi and is located along Star Street, the path that Joseph and Mary made on Christmas Eve. The second Guest House is called Dar As-Sideh Pilgrim Home and is located next to the Basilica of the Nativity.

The Pro Terra Sancta Guest Houses welcome guests in comfortable double and triple rooms with private bathroom. All rooms have been renovated preserving the traditional architecture but ensuring modern functionality. On the top floor of both Guest Houses there is a common dining room with equipped kitchen and large terraces with panoramic views of Bethlehem. Breakfast is Palestinian and international and is served in a unique location while the Wi-Fi is excellent and free.

The staff of our Guest House is available to organize personalized sightseeing tours and typical dinners. Our guests also have the opportunity to visit the headquarters of the Pro Terra Sancta Association in Bethlehem, participate in our cultural events and explore our Fair Trade bazaar.

Our Guest Houses have 13 rooms in total, 6 in Dar Al Majus and 7 in Dar As Sideh for a total of 30 beds. Our accommodations are suitable for pilgrims, families and even small groups who wish to stay in a friendly environment with a Palestinian flavor.

Staying at the Pro Terra Sancta Guest Houses means not only experiencing the true charm of Bethlehem, but also supporting the social and humanitarian projects of our Association in Palestine.

In 2018 after the acquisition of another ancient abandoned building (Hosh), on Star Street, adjacent to the guesthouse, was also born the Dar Al Majus Community Home, a unique place of assistance and culture and at the same time a place of encounter with the living reality of the city where Jesus was born.


Pro Terra Sancta projects in Bethlehem

Pro Terra Sancta is active in Bethlehem with social projects to assist families, with particular attention to the weakest sections of the population. Due to the socio-political situation, the city is in a situation of serious economic crisis with a total absence of an assistance system capable of responding to the hardship, poverty and needs of people.

The activities are managed from the offices at the Dar Al Majus Community Center through a listening and support center where requests are welcomed. In addition to the activities managed directly, there is various types of aid to other charitable organizations and associations to which Pro Terra Sancta provides support.


Living conditions in Bethlehem are not easy and, as often happens, it is always the most fragile, the children who continue to be born in the West Bank, who pay the price. Because of the wall that closes the city and the poverty of families , children are often affected by trauma and grow up violent.

For this reason, for over fifteen years we have been in Bethlehem to take care of these little ones, to guarantee them a proper education and the possibility of a more beautiful future. We want everyone to have a chance in life and we know that it is crucial to start with education.


In Palestine, those who do not have children have no one to take care of them. The Government should grant a Social Welfare to some more vulnerable cases but in addition to not covering all medical expenses, especially the most expensive ones, it is not paid regularly and the amount that should be "guaranteed" every month is given only every 3 or 4 months. To respond to this emergency, the Antonian Society is one of the private institutions in Bethlehem that hosts elderly people who are alone who otherwise could not meet their basic needs.

Water and housing emergency

Due to the social and political situation and the high unemployment rate, many families in Bethlehem live in poverty. In addition, again due to the political situation, the water supply is irregular and is often not supplied for weeks. This is why every house in Bethlehem is equipped with a cistern that can guarantee the supply even in times of drought.

The jerry cans were traditionally made of iron and over time they have rusted making them preicolante and unhygienic. Pro Terra Sancta has been supporting the families of Bethlehem for years through the supply of cisterns and the repair of houses that are also in a state of severe decay.
