  • Dress slept and dined in this property suitable to accommodate pilgrims or tourists not very demanding. Shooting and quiet rooms. Very nice panorama on Haifa. We had dinner in a simple way but welcomed by smiling and sincere hospitality

  • The convent of the Sea Star in the Mediterranean city of Haifa in northern Israel, located in the sea, was when it opened to the Terrace Church, and did not need a special visit.
