Kur is a beautiful, historical village dating back to 12th century Mamluk rule. Located in the middle of the Nablus, Tulkarem, Qalqilya triangle, it is a pretty stopover with residents who are more than happy to show visitors around. Its oldest buildings have been the subject of an emergency project to prevent further deterioration of stonework. These are the highlight of any trip to the village, combined with sumptuous views out across the surrounding olive-covered hills. Roughly 19km southeast of Tulkarem, the majority of the village’s residents are the descendants of a clan called the Jayyusi.
