Cockerels crowing as the sun rises give Rabud a charm traditionally associated with British countryside hamlets. But while Rabud is a small village, it is also one of the most beautiful in the Hebron governorate, and rich with history. It is well located just off the main road, and consists of a great variety of different homes down tree-lined streets, with land separated by dry stone walls. Green fields and olive groves surround the village on all sides, while the beautiful and hauntingly old cemetery rests in a prime elevated position.
There are also the remains of an Old Town on a hill looming above the village, from which the views are spectacular. However, villagers claim the old houses were ransacked of anything with heritage value by Israelis in 2011. Rabud, located 13km southwest of Hebron, also has its own sports club.
