Tel es-Sultan, Jericho

(3.2/5 based on 70 reviews on the web)
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.
