Mentioned many times in the Hebrew Bible and New Testament, Mount Tabor draws pilgrims and tourists with its rich religious and historic background, as well as its scenic views of the valley. Many Christians consider this the site of Jesus' transfiguration, while for Jewish people it represents the battleground where the Israelite judge Deborah defeated the army of Jabin. The hill features a Franciscan basilica, a Greek Orthodox sanctuary, some Roman ruins, and the remains of 13th-century Crusader towers and walls. Two hiking trails lead to its top, where you may meet some local hang gliders about to launch.
