Strategic Sites of the Holyland

Acre, Caesarea, Armageddon
Throughout history the narrow strip of land – locked between the desert to the east and the Mediterranean Sea to the west – Israel of the Biblical time and of today, served as a narrow bridge between the superpower to the south west (Egypt) and to the north east (Babylon).

Later as a barrier between the Roman and the Persian empires, and the Crusaders and the Muslims, the importance of this piece of land became obvious.

Throughout the land there were strategic sites, and whoever controlled them was holding the key to the Middle East.




The tour takes you to 3 of the more strategic sites within this narrow strip of land called Israel, that had bearing on world history from ancient times.
