The heart of the 'land of a thousand caves', Beit Guvrin National Park!

Beit Guvrin was the home of a settlement of people thousands of years ago. Left behind is a testimony to their lives, including a Roman amphitheatre, ruins of a fortress and church from the Crusader period and caves used for a variety of purposes. The national park has sparse woodlands and Mediterranean scrub, rich with a sampling of flora and fauna. Like many places in Israel, Beit Guvrin is an impressive place to see remains from ancient times, reminding us of where humans have been. Keep your eyes open, you might spot a Palestine Mountain Gazelle, golden jackal, striped hyena or red fox!
