Along the north side of Mount Carmel is situated Israel's main port of Haifa. It is an ancient and special city in its own right with a famous fortress. In antiquity, Haifa was known as Sycaminum and as Caiphas during the time of Crusades in the 11th and 12th centuries. In the 12th century a castle created on the site by Crusaders was destroyed by Saladin, sultan of Syria and Egypt.
Haifa is also close to the Sea of Galilee and Nazareth. In Nazareth tourists will find the striking Basilica of the Annunciation (the archangel Gabriel is said to have appeared to Mary there), the Church of St Joseph (the site of Joseph's carpentry shop) and St Mary's Well. Lake Tiberias (The Sea of Galilee) is a clear freshwater rift valley lake encircled by a beach. In the past, the vicinity of Lake Tiberias was very well populated, and some of the trade routes of Asia Minor converged at the lake. 9 cities flourished on its shores, and it was a centre of extensive fishing industry. Only Tiberias, of the biblical towns on the western shore, still exists.
It is also possible to visit the Holy City of Jerusalem, sacred to Jews, Muslims and Christians, from Haifa.
