Shoufa Village

Address:
Tulkarem
Description:

Shoufa village is located south-east of Tulkarm, and contains many buildings that date back to the Roman and Byzantine periods.

The village is the site of Khirbet Samara, ‘the ruins of Samara,’ where archaeological ruins show that the area was used as a military base for the Romans during the Roman reign in Palestine. The village is also surrounded to the southwest by the ruins of many Roman towers, which signifies that the village was located near an important Roman road during that period.

Shoufa village houses, as well, many other interesting sites to visit, such as Al-Burqawe Castle, Khillet Al-Kaniseh, and Tel Shomar.
