Masada is a symbol for us the jews for courage.
Massada is a fortress that is very close to the dead sea (you can combine both of them) and from Massada you can see the amazing view of the dead sea and the surrounding mountains.
Massada is UNESCO World Heritage Site and entrance to the place will cost you 70 nis for and adult and 35 for a child.

From Eilat, it's easy to make a daytrip to Massada.
The fortress atop a sheer-sided plateau was the last stand of the Zealots, Jewish rebels who rose against the Roman Empire in 66 AD. When defeat was inevitable, the 967 men, women and children holed up at Masada took their own lives rather than be captured
