Mount Tabor, Kfar Tavor

#3 of 17 in Nature in Galilee Region
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.

  • I recommend visiting this place also for the surrounding landscape. place on a mountain (to climb there are available small pulmanini that take you to the top letting you admire the beauty of the surrounding landscape). The church is very beautiful and it is said that in this place the transfiguration of Jesus took place. I recommend buying coffee from the small bar near the church, run by boys (great), If you go on a sunny day, the lookout is gorgeous
