Megiddo National Park, Nazareth

(4.3/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Take a tour of UNESCO-protected Megiddo National Park, an artificial hill formed by millennia of building and rebuilding in the same spot. The tell boasts 26 layers of ancient ruins, with the site dating back to 7000 BCE before being abandoned in the sixth century BCE. Besides being mentioned in a number of ancient Greek, Egyptian, and Roman writings, the mount is also the origin of the term “Armageddon,” as the apocalyptic battle is supposed to happen on this site, according to the Book of Revelations. Explore the historic complex and view an array of remains, some of them from the site's glory days during the Bronze Age. Megiddo National Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Nazareth Edition.

  • We believe that the visit of the Tell, is necessary to start with the Museum, since it contains a rich collection of photographs, which, together with a movable plastic reproduction of the same, makes us a view of the integral of the different periods of occupation. The services of a guide is essential. The ruins of Meguiddo, are the strategic point which torrent Ara enters the Valley of Jezrael. Your height you conferred in the antique a position quite advantageous on the international "Via Maris" that crossed from Sharon to the plain of Esdraelon, by the step of Meguiddo, as on them routes of the South. In his time he excelled commercial and military.

  • We only toured the ruins and found the ancient history very interesting. Several people have said they had difficulty finding the ruins. Search for "Megiddo Ruins," the entrance is not far off the main road. There is a light colored stone wall with gold letters that reads "Tel Megiddo" and a smaller green sign past that as well. Go up the hill and you will find the visitor's center on the right.
  • Love this place. Excellent park for family trip.
  • Very important and interesting place!!!! מקום חשוב ומאוד מעניין!!!
  • Armageddon the real location awesome.
  • Very Disappointing Park. With nothing but ruins, the site is very bland leaving very little but imagination, especially with the high cost to enter. Would not recommend to my enemy.
