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.
