#3 of 7 in Things to do in Jericho
Witness early history at Tel es-Sultan, the complex believed to house the oldest town in the world. Walk the 0.4 hectare (1 acre) area, which stands as a testament of human architectural craftsmanship that's included on the World Heritage Site list. See the wall surrounding the site (also known as the ancient city of Jericho),which dates back to 8,000 BCE and learn about the flood protection of the people who inhabited the city. A cone-shaped Neolithic tower served either as a military observatory or an astronomical center for the locals. To learn more about the history of the site, read the plaques available on site.

  • Always exciting to drive Israeli car hire into the area A in the West Bank. Here we talk about Palestinian self-rule, military and municipal. Normally quite hassle-free to run right back and then taking one of a little up to the left after about 5 km no matter if your site is not particularly nicely so it is a strange feeling to be in a place where there have been settlements from 8500 before Christ. The trip must of course be combined with bathing in the dead sea.

  • The ruins of Jericho have many, many years, as such there is no much information so it is best to go with a guide that explains everything to understand it. The views from there are also very nice and the simple fact of knowing the historical importance of the place that is depressed is magical.

  • Think that the deeper layers are dated between the 9th and 7th Millennium BC! Is worth a look, although there is still much to do. Interesting to see how archaeologists working on layers of different ages.
