For a tour of a 250-year old Palestinian house, a 5 minute walk from Al Manara Square is Dar Zahran's Heritage Builting. Zahran, who runs this building is so passionate about his project that he is more than happy to show visitors around and explain how the building was used as a home - it was the residence of Ramallah's "Mukhtar", the head of the town - and as a centre of the community.
The heritage centre also hosts a museum, art gallery and shop, and is a peaceful place to spend an hour or so.
