Asia - Israel, Holy Land


Hey guys!


Today I take you in a wonderful country considered as Holy land: Israel. You will discover my oriental city-trip.
Enjoy!

  •       A little friendly reminder about geography:

Israel is a Middle Eastern country on the Mediterranean Sea defined as Holy land because there are many sacred sites mainly in Jerusalem, the capital of the country.
Mainly town of Jerusalem are: Tel-Aviv, Jerusalem, Eilat, Nazareth, and Haifa and I had the chance to visit two of them: Jerusalem and Haifa.

Jerusalem

The city is divided in 4 quarter: Christian quarter, Muslim Quarter, Jewish Quarter and to finish Armenian Quarter.

  • Mount of olives

The Mount of Olives (Hebrew: , Har HaZeitim) is a mountain ridge east of and adjacent to Jerusalem's Old City. It is named for the olive groves that once covered its slopes. It separates the Old city from the Judean Desert. Moreover many episodes in the Bible took place in the Mount place is a religious symbol. Furthermore this place is also a way to enjoy of a exceptional and panoramic view of Jerusalem’s old city.

  • Via dolorosa – Christian Quarter 

The “Via Dolorosa” or “Painful way” is the street within the old city of Jerusalem held to be the path that Jesus walked on the way to his crucifixion. The route is mark by 9 Stations of the Cross within them, 5 are in the Holy Sepulchre, the holiest place for Christians. This is a place of pilgrimage for many Christians.

  • The Market – Christian Quarter

The market in the Christian Quarter is one of Jerusalem’s most popular tourist attractions, is located in the Christian quarter and is a noisy, colourful market where one can buy decorated pottery, candles, souvenirs, ethnic costumes, jewellery, glass lamps and food product like different spices.

  • Western Wall – Jewish Quarter 

The Western Wall, Wailing Wall or Kotel is an ancient limestone wall in the Old City of Jerusalem. It is considered holy due to its connection to the temple Mount. In reality the wall is the most significant site of the world for Jewish people.

Haifa

  • The Bahá'í Garden

Concern Haifa, I had chosen to present the most interesting place in the town : The Bahá'í Garden.
It’s one of the most visited tourist attractions in Israel.
