What is TERRA FIDEA?
Terra Fidea “Land of Fidelity” is considered to be a historic area of great significance to Palestinian heritage and the last and only natural preserved area in the city of Ramallah.
The name Terra Fidea originates from Latin, meaning faithful and sincere. This narrow valley is situated between two mountains, in which ancient roman trees flourish, as well as pine, oak, eucalyptus, figs, peaches, almonds, apricots, grape wines and wild herbs such as thumb and sage.

Ruins in Terra Fidea indicate that it was once the site of a Roman village. In the valley there are rock carvings and wildlife, as well as “palaces” that serve agricultural purposes. Referred to as al-manatir, these are important historical monuments to the traditional lives of Palestinian society. There was also a spring of water that used to provide fresh,
pure water to the area.
The continued survival of the Terra Fidea as an authentic ecological microcosm is under threat from dwindling water supplies, urban development and competition for land.
