Enchanting, historic village, filled with picturesque streets and alleyways, is the stuff of which legends are made.
At kibbutz on outskirts of Jerusalem, a short ladder now leads into a cleaned-out tunnel and an arched chamber completed in Second Temple period.
They call it a ‘family trip’. Actually it’s a challenging hike. But so worth the effort.
Paths full of flowers crisscross the area, with Byzantine remains at the higher level, and the walls and buildings of a not-well-enough-fortified Israelite town below.
Even without flowers, the sweet air and peaceful atmosphere along the Govrin Riverbed make this scenic route worthwhile.
