Join us for a lively virtual podcast tour in the beautiful town of Battir, south of Jerusalem, right on the Green Line, the demarcation line between Israel and the Westbank. With Hassan Mu'amer we explore the history and cultural landscape of Battir. He explains us how an ancient water system, that brings the spring water to the eight families of Battir, is the reason that Battir exclusively has eight-days a week. You will hear the water throughout the walk, you will understand how this agricultural community made it to UNESCO's world heritage list. And this is only episode 1. Because we will continue with more interesting and inspiring stories in episode 2.
If you want to connect to Hassan to ask him about Battir, to organize a hike or a visit to Battir, to reserve a lunch at The Terraces Cafe or at the Dar Abu Hassan guesthouse (where you can also stay in the beautiful guesthouse) then you can find him on Facebook:
