We’ll see the Jewish Quarter where we visit the Rabbinic Tunnels and the Western Wall, the most sacred spot in Jewish religious and national consciousness, by virtue of its proximity to the Western Wall of the Holy of Holies in the Temple.

To commemorate the event, the king built a fortress and a palace which he named after himself, located on a hill shaped like a truncated cone that rises 758 m. above sea level. It has a breathtaking view, overlooking the Judean Desert, the mountains of Moab, and the Judean Hills.
