Mount Tabor, Kfar Tavor
(4.8/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Mentioned many times in the Hebrew Bible and New Testament, Mount Tabor draws pilgrims and tourists with its rich religious and historic background, as well as its scenic views of the valley. Many Christians consider this the site of Jesus' transfiguration, while for Jewish people it represents the battleground where the Israelite judge Deborah defeated the army of Jabin. The hill features a Franciscan basilica, a Greek Orthodox sanctuary, some Roman ruins, and the remains of 13th-century Crusader towers and walls. Two hiking trails lead to its top, where you may meet some local hang gliders about to launch. Make Mount Tabor a part of your Kfar Tavor vacation plans using our Kfar Tavor tourist route planner.

  • It dominates the plain to the sea almost and took place the battle of the horns of Hattin, where Saladin defeated the Crusaders in this step. It is an area of very important trade or caravan route step if you prefer. Below, where the minibus was taken there are bathrooms which is entered by entering 1 shekel believe in a machine. The case is that it does not work very well and sometimes swallowed coin and the Manager becomes the tontico very well "my understand". Notice.

  • Access to the area is forbidden to cars, so you can choose to go up on foot or with the service of minibuses that are constantly back and forth to a location quite quaint and full of curves. The mount is famous for the Transfiguration of Jesus in the presence of Peter, James, and John with the appearance of Moses and Elijah. As a result the Crusaders before, Franciscan monks then built an imposing church which inside valuable paintings and mosaics with depictions of the scene of the Transfiguration, Angels and the Prophet Elijah. The mountain is very windy and offers stunning views and a nice glance upon the surrounding region of Galilee.

  • A shuttle bus service leads to the top of the mountain where, on the Esplanade, is the Church of the Transfiguration. The façade, with three chapels, recalls the three tents mentioned by Peter in the Gospel. It is a lovely place. On clear days, from the terraces, you can enjoy a wide view of the surrounding landscape.
