Photochrom print collection (Holy Land)
Located in the Central Highlands between Nablus and Hebron, just a few kilometers southwest of Jerusalem, lies the remarkable site of Battir. This breathtaking hill landscape is characterized by a series of fertile valleys known as widian, adorned with stunning stone terraces. These terraces serve a variety of purposes, with some being used for market garden production and others adorned with flourishing grapevines and olive trees.
