Palestine, officially the State of Palestine, is a de jure sovereign state in the Middle East claiming the West Bank and Gaza Strip with East Jerusalem as the designated capital, although its administrative center is currently located in Ramallah.

Popular tourist destinations in Palestinian Territories are Bethlehem where you can visit the Church of the Nativity and walk through the old city. In Ramallah the Yasser Arafat Museum and in Jericho the Hisham's Palace. In addition to historical and religious sites, one can also explore wonderful natural heritage sites such as Galilee, which is a fertile mountainous region known for the Sea of Galilee where Jesus is said to have walked on water.
