Wadi Nisnas, Haifa

3.6
Haifa's Arab neighborhood, Wadi Nisnas remains known for its busy marketplace, stone buildings, and charming alleyways. When walking down this district's historical streets and through its market, you may have the feeling that you've left the city and entered an ancient village. Home to 8,000 residents, the area burst onto the world stage when author Sami Michael used it as a setting for his 1987 novel "Trumpet in the Wadi."

  • Very interesting area of Haifa-Arabic quarter is inhabited by Arabs-Catholics. Especially beautiful here in late December, during the Christmas holidays, when everything is brightly decorated. Carnival procession-Santa Claus special on entertainment action!

  • Wadi nisnas a magical place for a walk also. Picturesque alleys, delis, bakeries and most beautiful vegetables. On the side of the women selling homemade food acts. During the holidays the place turns into a scene person, local events and fairs.
