Sat atop a hill and reached by a majestic road leading up a fertile, green valley, Beit Lid is a quirky, historic town. The main attraction for visitors is the so-called tourist village, built on the site of a Roman stone quarry in the heart of the Old Town. It is now an archaeological site, modern leisure centre and wedding venue all rolled into one. As well as the tourist village, Beit Lid is also home to one of the most delightful Old Towns in the Tulkarem governorate. There are shops selling local produce, fast food and household items dotted throughout the town’s mazy streets. Beit Lid has four schools, its own clinic and four mosques.
Located just a few kilometres southwest of Tulkarem, Beit Lid is a primarily agricultural town with olives, almonds, figs and grapes among the primary crops grown.
