Surif is a large, varied and spacious town, boasting seven beautiful mosques within its vicinity. Located 25km northwest of Hebron, it is a focal point for many of the surrounding villages. Most of the town’s land is used for agriculture, in particular olives, wheat and barley.
The Old Town, located on the hill above the town, is a delightful combination of traditional stone architecture and two newer, stunning mosques. Surif, which has four schools, has an entirely Muslim population.
