Military History Tours          Beersheba Centenary Tour 24 October 2017

  

A great day of culture and battle descriptions.

An early start, then we headed to Megiddo where the cultural and military significance of the site was explained. In particular why the Australian units that fought their way to the North of Israel in 1918 were given the battle honour "Megiddo".

Then to the El Herod Kibbutz where our tour group were, due to family connections, given an unforgettable tour and explanation of the working of one of these unique Israeli institutions.

After this we travelled to a lookout above Nazareth where we had our box lunch in the shade of native trees. The lookout affording us an excellent view of Nazareth and the surrounding countryside.

Refreshed we descended into the city and its congestion. Our drivers did a great job navigating us to a point where we could visit the Church of the Annunciation. Then, next door the Church of Saint Joseph.

A short drive to Tiberius and we visited the Dona Gracia Museum, which tells the story of Gracia Nasi who used her considerable wealth to save many Jewish refugees of the Spanish Inquisition and build a Jewish city in Tiberias.

A long day; we were all thankful to get to our hotel for a drink and another great meal.
