Sebastiya is perhaps best known for its well preserved Roman ruins including an amphitheater and temple.  There is also a Byzantine church at the location where John the Baptist is reputed to be buried.

However just down the hill from the ancient ruins the modern village of Sebastiya contains little known gems including a restored buildings dating back to the crusader era.



For several years the Italian organisation, Associazione di Terra Santa (ATS), has been working with the municipality to conserve the rich cultural heritage and has funded building restoration.

Over the years a huge complex of buildings dating back to the Crusader period emerged from hundreds of cubic meters of rubble, including the structure that is now a guest house.



The charming guest house in the heart of the village currently has several rooms with a choice of single or double beds. Please indicate on the reservation form which room you prefer.  For large groups there are also families in the village that host overnight guests. Contact the administrator for details. the village is a great base to explore the roman ruins and surrounding area. The villagers are very friendly and run various shops and restaurants.

Sebastiya is situated about 15 kilometres north-west of Nablus. Public and private transportation is available to Sebastiya from Tel Aviv or Jerusalem.
