Story through

Rosh Pina (meaning cornerstone) is a beautiful town located at the foot of Mount Canaan (Cna'an) and the city of Safed. Rosh Pina was founded in 1878 and its rural character, its landscapes and the remnants of the structures that are still seen in it, in the old Rishonim Street and all around the town, reflect and present the history and origin of the modern Jewish settlement in the Galilee region. In Rosh Pina there is a reconstructed area that is like an open museum which includes the upper street which was built by the pioneers, the administrative center of the Baron Edmond de Rothschild, the famous rose garden and the house of Professor Mer, who lived here in 1929 and was sent by the British government to find a cure for malaria. Today the house serves as an archive and a museum. The reconstructed site captures the charm of the old town of Rosh Pina. Along the enchanting reconstructed streets and alleys charming restaurants, pubs and cafés, artists’ galleries and romantic corners can be found.

Acient Tel Hazor (‎Hatzor Mound), located in the southern part of the Hula Valley, is one of the most important of the archeological sites of Israel and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. According to the archeological excavations which took place at Tel Hazor (‎Hatzor Mound), this site was inhabited for the first time in the Early Canaanite Period (3300-2200 BCE). Visitors to the charming site of Tel Hazor will get to view various findings, such as a large structure from the Late Bronze Age, a wall and a gate that are attributed to the days of the rule of King Solomon, and another large and impressive structure, the Hazor water-supply system, which was probably built during the time of the rule of Ahab, the Biblical king of Israel. The engineers of Hazor built a sophisticated and unique water-supply system, which purpose was to supply the residents of the ancient city of Hazor with water. This water-supply system, which is completely housed within Tel Hazor, included a 45 meters deep pit which was cut into the rock and reached the underground water level.

Today, this beautiful and colorful site serves as a way station for birds on their way from Africa to Europe. Here people can connect with this wonderful nature, with its rare and ancient flora, with the help of trails which go on top of wooden bridges that are built above the lake and provide an opportunity to observe these thousands of birds, unique fish and buffalo herds, which live on this reserve.
