Sinjil is a small village with a beautiful historic core, located 21km northeast of Ramallah. Perched on a hill and surrounded by fields of olive groves, Sinjil is home to old stone houses with domed roofs in various states of ruin. But there is also a modern centre, with a post office and a few shops.
The village is bordered by the wealthy town of Turmus Ayya, which is a favourite of American Palestinians who own big, luxurious villas.
Population: 5,236 (2006)
