Rafat is a small village with an excellent historic core, located just 4km southwest of Ramallah although it is part of Jerusalem governorate.
The incredible old town is crying out to be renovated and into a proper tourist attraction. It has numerous old houses and buildings to explore, as well as rooftops to climb over and enjoy the views. The big, beautiful mosque takes pride of place in the centre of the village.
