Fodor's Expert Review Suzanne Dellal Centre for Dance and Theatre
A pair of whitewashed buildings—one built in 1892, the other in 1908—make up this attractive complex. The square, designed by noted landscape architect Shlomo Aronson, has hints of a medieval Middle Eastern courtyard in its scattering of orange trees connected by water channels. One side of the square is decorated with a tile triptych that illustrates the neighborhood's history and famous people who lived here in the early years, including S. Y. Agnon, who went on to win the Nobel Prize in Literature. There's a café-bar on the premises and a number of great restaurants nearby for pre- or postperformance meals. It's worth a stroll here even if you aren't seeing a performance.
