The Golan

The Golan Heights, a captivating region that has been the subject of controversy since the Six-Day War, when Israel captured and de facto annexed it. This enclave is distinguished by its breathtaking beauty and rich history, housing scenic treasures and archaeological sites that attract numerous visitors.

With a total of 62 ancient synagogues dating back to the Roman and Byzantine periods, the region offers a unique experience. From the heights, the view becomes more and more magnificent, with volcanic hills on the eastern edge and basalt cliffs descending towards the Jordan Valley, Lake Kinneret, and the Yarmouk River in the south and west.
