Every Christmas I walk down Star Street when I arrive to Bethlehem - following Saint Joseph and mother Mary's path to the Nativity. Christmas does not feel complete without a reminiscent walk along this historical street. There are beautiful views along this narrow stone street, which is lined with limestone houses with beautifully ornamented entrances and windows. It begins near the site of King David’s Wells and gently meanders through the main part of the historic centre and under the Qaus Al-Zarrara - sometimes also called Damascus Gate - towards Manger Square and the Church of the Nativity. It is the road that once connected Bethlehem to Jerusalem and further cities such as Damascus, which is why this is thought to be the route Saint Joseph and mother Mary travelled on that blessed night. A very quiet street that is nicely restored with new paving stones and all the shops and homes have brightly painted doors alternating yellow, blue, purple and grey.

Whilst this is the oldest street in the area, I didn't particularly feel safe as the shop owners were coming out to encourage you to come into their shop and in the midst of walking down this street, you had to dodge the cars traveling up/down the street at the same time. Though you need to use this street to access some of the churches (mainly the milk grotto).

The oldest street in Bethlehem. Shops. Shopping. Candy. Clothes. Olive wood. A very nice area if you’ve come this far.

This is a great wee street where you can buy some genuine Palestinian ethnic gifts which will support the very limited means of earning an income the residents have available to them. Aladien's shop is highly recommended.
