    Canada Park is a big nature reserve that was built with help from canadian jews and this is how the park got his name.

    Very close to the monastery with great view.

    You can enjoy the nature with walking trails , biking trails , places to see birds.

    When people in Israel say Latrun they think about the monastery that is located here.
    We call it "Minzar Ha'shatkanim" which means the monastery of the people who don't speak.

    The monastery was build in 1861 by the Trappist order and the monks are famous for being silence and also for the wine they are making.

    The monastery is open 09:00-11:00 and 15:30-16:30 except sundays and christian holidays.

    the wine store is open 07:30-18:00.

    Not too far from the abbey, you will find Mini Israel Park. In this park you can see scale down models of Israeli sites. The models are on 1:25 scale of the real ones and are exremely accurate. One annoying thing here is the addition of commercial stuff. So, some sites were put in just because they have to do with one of the sponsors and some details reflect the sponsors list. For example, all the gas stations you'll see there belong to one chain, all the busses belong to Egged, etc. But, except for this tiny issues, you can have a walk and see dozens of famous, beautiful, sites. This could help you decide on places you want to visit which were not on your origianl list of places to see.
