    city walls

    Favorite thing: The city of akko is not a very big city.
    There are something like 45000 citizens and there are 75% Jews and the rest are Arabs (most of them are muslims).

    The old town of Akko is a world heritage site since 2001 by Unesco.

    Acco - Old bars (BARS, not pub)

    Acco sea air destruction, Israel

    Favorite thing: These massive iron bars on a window give proof of the damage that a seaside environment can wreck on any type of metal.
    Up close you could see cracks running into almost the center of these bars and huge chunks were flaking off.

    It is very old city

    Akko

    Favorite thing: Akko is very old city since the biblical time. It passed a lot during thousands years and has a lot of history to find out here, so if you are visiting the north part of Israel, go to visit Akko too, you will not regret it.

    Fondest memory: Well, as you can see from my rusty photos, it has been very long time since I was here, so there are no fondest memories either, but you can check this official web site, choose your language and you will find a great recourse of information.

    The

    Favorite thing: One of the structures in the old city is the "Khan". An interesting structure built around a central courtyard. The entire building is two storied with covered "porches" which run completely around the inside of the structure.

    Acco, city sea wall tower, Israel

    Favorite thing: This tower can be found on the northern most section of the sea wall, protecting the city from invaders. Even here you can see the reef that helped protect the city from invaders by the sea route.
