Stood and looked in awe at this wonderful place. Took many photos and will in time do some painting to remember this place by. It's a steep walk from the bottom road and a little slippy underfoot.

Incredible panoramic views. Very interesting Jewish cemetery full of history including the tomb of Menahem Begin, Prime Minister of Israel who was active with the peace talks with Egyptian President Anwar Sedat. We enjoyed our tour guide, Samuel, who taught us that placing a stone on the burial site pays respect.

You just get AWESTRUCK, almost overwhelmed with the antiquity and vastness of all the ancient yet even current grave sights. Very heart moving.
