Ramallah is ambitious. Located 900 meters above sea level and only fifteen kilometers away from Jerusalem, Ramallah has the status of administrative capital of Palestine. This feature gives it a cosmopolitan atmosphere, emphasized by the presence of many NGOs and a constant flow of foreigners.
The urbanization of Ramallah seems chaotic and fragmented. Following the reunification of several villages, Ramallah was born. Today, a few of these modest parts remain. Concrete structures of future towers stand in the city and announce its urban transformation.
Ramallah is a vibrant city that does not leave its visitors indifferent. It impresses with its climate, its contrasts, its culture and nightlife.
