The Palestinian village of Aboud is located 30 km northwest of Ramallah, sitting 450 meters above sea level. It is also known as the “City of Flowers.” The village has a beautiful mountainous landscape cultivated with olive trees.
Besides its rich natural heritage, Aboud is equally rich in its historical treasures. It has several churches, monasteries, and mosques that are built on foundations dating back to Byzantine, Ottoman, and Crusader periods.
The oldest church in the village is the Messieh Church, which is located in the center of the village. Other churches include Simons Church, Saint Todros Church, and Saint Anastasia Church. Another, the Virgin Mary Church, is built on the foundations of a 5th century church and was renovated in the 11th century.
