OUTSIDE OF JERUSALEM: Acre-Acco

OUTSIDE OF JERUSALEM:
Acre-Acco – Underground Crusader City and a UNESCO World Heritage Site

Over much of its long history, the coastal city of Acco served as one of the key ports of the land of Israel. For thousands of years Acco was besieged and conquered by a series of invaders, yet at times its strong fortifications kept it from defeat. Even Napoleon Bonaparte was unable to conquer the city. Yet after trying for decades, the Crusaders finally took Acco in 1104, and it became thriving city of great importance. Indeed, it was declared the capital of the Crusader kingdom in the Holy Land.

Much of the Crusader town has been discovered under present day Acco, and the remains are almost intact! Don’t miss this unparalleled picture of the Crusader capital.

Dear Aviva and Shmuel,
It was hectic getting back to work and to our everyday routines after our trip to Eretz Yisrael. It was "truly the trip of a lifetime". The three days that we spent with Shmuel touring the Judean Desert and the Negev were exceptional. Shmuel's energy, enthusiasm and knowledge made that part of our journey all the more memorable for us. . .
