Located 11 miles west of the Sea of Galilee, Mount Tabor is believed by many Christians to be the site of the transfiguration of Jesus. Whatever the truth of such claims, the area has certainly got a rich history. The summit has seen the carnage of many historical conflicts, including the battle of Barak and the army of Jabin in the 14th century, and a French force of just 3,000 soldiers commanded by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1799 that fought off a Mamluk force of more than 20,000 soldiers.
