Walied Khoury is a resident of the beautiful Christian village Fassuta. Fassuta is one of 2 villages in the Western Galilee with 100% Christian residents.
Walied developed an interest in iron at age 40, he never dealt with manual labor before that.
You can visit Walied at his smithy, hear his story, see a variety of ironworks and furniture he makes and also watch a demonstration of his blacksmithing skills.
If you book in advance, Walied can take you on a short tour of the village – to the ancient church that was recently renovated.
Walied was asked to reconstruct the church’s main door and pillars. The ancient church is close to the new church, also worth a visit.
