The beautyfull beach and the fort Aug 23, 2012
I got this book for different places to see in Israel.
When a friend from Germany came over for a visit I gave her thee book , told her to pick a picture and that's where we'll go. Just about an hour from Tel Aviv by car and we were there.
It's thee best viewing point for thee remains of giant fortress
Atlit , located in a natural peninsula.
Knights and Templar began building thee fort in 1218 , they called it Fort pilgrims , after thee pilgrims who helped building it.
The fortress was built on thee ruins of Port and Phoenician trading colony established here during 8the century before count.
In the year 1256 , Sultan Baybars attacked Atlit.The city was conquered , but the fort survived the attack was never conquered.
Adjacent to the parking area between the road and the pier (accompanied by a pipe that penetrates the sea), is a fenced compound with a low stone fence and hundreds of rectangular stones. This is the cemetery of Atlit period. Cemetery gravestones were approximately 1,700 limestone. Names of the dead, as is common in Europe in those days, were not written on the headstones. Some of which were enacted crosses.
The beach is not organized for bathing (but you won't see that bothering anyone..), and that's why he stayed more or less natural.
The only structure that there is a dock accompanied by the salt company's pipeline. Tube sucks the sea and moves them salt ponds, which are east of the road leading to the castle. This site is a favorite of fishermen and lovers of romance.
It's beautiful , great worm Israeli weather and the feeling of a private beach..
