Hosh al Sabbar and the Caesariyya – Dahriyeh

This project includes the reconstruction of three cross vaults in Hosh al Sabbar, an architecturally unique building that was once deteriorating rapidly. The town harbors the potential of becoming a tourist attraction for local and/or alternative tourism, but the closest accommodation facilities were in Hebron. After an intensive process of discussion and negotiations amongst the stakeholders and the larger RIWAQ community, it was agreed that the al Sabbar courtyard would be transformed into a guesthouse. The building was restored to host twenty-five beds in eleven rooms, of different types, all within a 250 square meter courtyard, and 400 square meters of terrace space. The municipality is presently seeking investors.
