Akko is basicaly a very old city and its another prove for how people from all religions can live together.
Most of the population of Akko is Jewish & Arabs and a minority of Christians.
Thats one of the reasons that i like this place, even just to see how well everyone can live together.
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.
(The picture is from my friend Steve at Educational Resources).
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.
Favorite thing: In Accre you can see the old port and at the area of the old city a lot of fishermans. Many people in Accre make a living of fishing and you can see the boats comes back or goes towards the big blue (the sea).
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.
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.
Favorite thing: The old city is packed with surprises, like this dog running around on the roofs, seen from the city wall.
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.
