Beit ‘Amra

Beit ‘Amra is a village neighbouring the industrial zone of Yatta, and 12km southwest of Hebron. Renowned for its olive production, particularly olive soap, as well as lemons, it is clear to see the importance of agriculture here. Olive trees sprout up out of every gap imaginable, and homes are adorned with flowers.

What To Do

A stroll through Beit ‘Amra will provide charming tableaus of agricultural Palestinian life, as well as some beautifully kept gardens and flower-covered homes.

Beit ‘Amra is just 12km southwest of Hebron, a remarkable, historic city still smarting from decades of conflict and political tension but well worth a visit to see for yourself.

Where To Eat

There are various typical Palestinian restaurants serving up delicious shawarma, chicken and falafel in the centre of town. Otherwise, head to Ras al Jora, a neighbourhood of Hebron, 8km away, which is famous for its dining scene.

Where To Stay

There are four hotels in Hebron, but there is a much greater variety in the more tourist-savvy areas of Bethlehem, Ramallah and of course Jerusalem.
