Mount Tabor, Kfar Tavor
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.

The first part is a visit to the Catholic monastery, where we passed almost all its buildings and enjoyed the beautiful views and very beautiful architecture and the second part - a visit to the Orthodox monastery. The place is no less attractive, but it was not comfortable when in Russian language we were asked to leave the monastery, because they have lunch. I wasn't allowed to shoot either. I was confused. In Russia, not only will no one be put outside the door, but also offered to dine... I will not express my opinion, let everyone evaluate himself!
Muito organizada a subida até o Monte Tabor, e talvez porque não sobem os ônibus, o local não estava tão cheio. A arquitetura da igreja é maravilhosa, lembrando as três tendas : de Jesus, Elias e Mois... more »Very organized the climb up to Mount Tabor, and perhaps because they do not climb the buses, the place was not so crowded. The architecture of the church is wonderful, remembering the three tents: Jesus, Elijah and Moses... "It's good to be here." The view is also very beautiful.
