Rosh Pina may have been settled by Romanians, but it was Baron de Rothschild who financed a number of early settlements including Rosh Pina, and came to be known as the Benefactor among the locals. There's a lovely garden in his name in the middle of the village, full of beauganvillia and pine trees. The garden is on an incline. At the top is a very intimate and rustic restaurant. Past the gardens is a small enclave of artists and cafes.
Half the fun of Rosh Pina must be strolling along the cobbled main street. You're treated to views of Mt. Hermon in the distance, and beauganvillia and pomegranates up close. You can stop at any one of the restaurants or pubs that dot the street, and enjoy the view and a cold drink or a tasty coffee. You'll see a few bed & breakfasts along here as well.
Here you can see some of the narrow and steep steps you will have to navigate to be able to investigate the upper reaches of Rosh Pina, these are the steps that lead down to several good restaurants, Rafa is one that we found excellent.
This is one of the most beautiful cobbled streets in upper Rosh Pina..but you can also see the "problem"...if you are coming with a car, there is very little parking space...if you can ask someone to direct you to the cemetary, there is parking there to spare, the only problem is that you have to climb 100 stairs to reach the city......
Only a few years ago this was the main street in Rosh Pina, the government offices were here, just off to the left..this is also the area where you will find many of the artists studios and also some fine restaurants.
This is the old cobbled road leading from the modern lower town to the upper old sections, make sure you have good shock absorbers on your car and good fillings in your teeth !!
