  • A great experience; not yet discovered by mass, so you can see all nice and quiet. It is very much larger and more impressive than you might think. Very special that they could build so many trade could set up in the desert. Recommended and take plenty of water with you!!

  • No entrance fee, easy to follow path with self guiding brochure. Unesco World Heritge Site. If you are interested in archeology/ history well worth the detour. Need a car. Bring hats and water.  more »

  • I and my husband spent a night here. The owner is a really kind lady, she made for us dinner and breakfast, everything home made and delicious! Like welcome she offered us tea and biscuits (home made). The farm is in the middle of the desert, close to Shivta archeological site. It seems in the middle of nothing but it's really suggestive. The rooms are clean and small, but you can't lock the door...it's not a big problem, everything it's really quite there! It's worth the time.
  • Restaurant with accommodation. A very quiet place.
