Taybeh

Address:
Ramallah & Al Bireh
Description:

Located a few kilometers east of Ramallah and 30 km northeast of Jerusalem, is the Palestinian Christian village of Taybeh. Situated on Mount Asur, with a population of nearly 1500, Taybeh is a predominantly Christian village.

Recently, Taybeh became home to one of the only Palestinian Breweries, Taybeh Beer. Every year in October, the village hosts local and international visitors for the annual Taybeh Beer Festival.

Besides this modern fame, Taybeh is also rich in history and culture. The famous Saint George Church which dates back to the Byzantine period is located in the center of the village. Visitors can admire its ruins behind the Melkite (Greek Orthodox) Church. Next to the Church, ancient mosaics were recently uncovered.
