  • a set of natural caves that served as a refuge for the inhabitants-resistant in this region, during the revolt of Bar-Koh'ba !!! the main cave requires a flexibility of the body, to be able to cross the whole dedale !!!

  • Not far from the center, a very narrow and romantic road navigates between the sites of archaeologists, low hills and lively shallow valleys, vine vineyards, wheat fields, a low natural forest of oaks and the old goddess, very suitable for bicycle and foot walking, and who wants to have a half-regulated camping option. In short, heaven.
