  • A small Carmelite monastery is dedicated to the Prophet Elijah-Saint, loved and in Judaism and in Christianity and in Islam. The current building was built in the early 20th century, but the history of the monastery dates back to the 12th century, when the Holy land was founded by the order of the Carmelites. The monastery is built at an altitude of 482 metres above sea level on the southern slope of Mount Carmel over Jezreel valley with magnificent views in all directions.

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.
