    Exactly where the Prophet Elijah faced and won the "prophets" of Baal. It's a wonderful place, with a spectacular view. With luck you will see some "Lilies", those quoted by Jesus.

    Highly recommended to visit mayhem. Especially on a day when there is a guided tour. This is an opportunity to see the work being done to restore the wildlife and nature. You can see here, fallow deer, wild goats and sheep, eagles and more.

Where to stay in Haifa

Look in the German Colony district close to the port to find the main bulk of the accommodations in Haifa. With its proximity to many of the urban attractions, this area has become a modern tourism hot spot. Here, you'll discover a rich mix of luxury hotels and boutiques set in well-maintained old blocks, as well as particularly budget-friendly options such as guesthouses. Alternatively, the coastline provides plenty of upmarket hotels in the more developed neighborhoods, and a scattering of guesthouses and resorts close to the sandy beaches.
