Israel Map

Dead Sea and Southern Israel
  • Timna Park, located some 25 km (about 17 miles) north of Eilat, combines beautiful scenery with special antiquities and history and a variety of activities the whole family will enjoy. Timna is the site of the world’s first copper mine, with remains of smelting furnaces dating back to ancient imperial Egypt. You’ll also see exciting finds at the Temple of Hathor near the spectacular Solomon’s Pillars, at the Mushroom, the impressive Arches, and of course, the ancient rock-drawings depicting hunters of ostriches and ibexes, Egyptian battle chariots and other images.
