Street Art

Bethlehem isn't all about the past: the separation wall, which cuts the city off from Jerusalem, has become a vast canvas for street artists, from local Palestinians to British veteran Banksy, who in 2016 opened a hotel on Caritas St, just metres away from the barrier. The Walled Off Hotel is an excellent place to begin a tour of the street art, including half a dozen Banksy stencils, as well as works by local and international artists. A number of shops offer the opportunity to add your own message.
