Acre (Akko) Attractions

By John Reality, Cambodia, February 2012

No reviews, be the first!

One of the oldest continuously occupied areas in Israel, Akko (or Acre) contains the structural remnants of a tumultuous past. The annals of history may include nearly continuous conflicts, occupations, resettlements, and destabilization, but the upshot is an astonishing collection of Jewish, Greek, Roman, Arab, Ottoman, Crusader, and British colonial artifacts and architecture. Akko is also considered the holiest city in the world by practitioners of the Bahá'í faith (owing to the existence of the Shrine of Baha'u'llah, which houses the tomb of the faith's prophet and founder).
