Hebron, or as it's known in Arabic, Al-Khalil, is the largest city in the West Bank and the second largest city in the Palestinian Territories. Located 30km south of Jerusalem, it's an industrial hub which generates approximately one third of the West Bank's GDP. Home of the Ibrahimi Mosque/Cave of the Machpelah—the burial site of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs of the Abrahamic religions: Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebecca, and Jacob and Leah—Hebron is of great religious significance for Muslims, Jews, and Christians alike. The Old Town of Hebron was also recently declared a cultural Palestinian World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Whether you're interested in the rich history of this holy city, the souq or traditional products and factories, or you're here to try the famous Hebron grapes, the 3-5 hour walking tour of the city has something for everyone!
