Israel Map

Dead Sea, Eilat and Southern Israel
  • The Old City, the university, the Turkish railway station, and the Bedouin market represent only a part of the colorful mosaic offered by the city of Be’er Sheba, a city full of life and proud of itself. The city is located at the intersection of two ancient road junctions: The "Way of the Sea" (Via Maris) in the west and the King’s Highway (the Valley Route) in the east, and Tel Be’er Sheba, five kilometers east of the city, is usually identified with biblical Be’er Sheba. The site is fascinating, and contains the ruins of a walled city from the Israelite monarchic period. Due to the wonderful finds there, UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site in 2005.
