This place used to be a copper mine set up by the Egyptians about 6000 years ago. Archaeologists couldn't figure out what all these circular depressions in the ground were. When they did some excavations, they figured out that the place had a whole series of mine shafts beneath the ground. Lots of cool geologic formations. Cool to go at night where they have a sound and light show on the rock faces. Corny movie that precedes the tour is informative (but may make you laugh at certain points - i recall something along the lines of "descending upon thirty foot shafts was a remarkable experience"...yeah i'm a dork whose mind is in the gutter). It's not actually in Eilat. It's about a 40 min drive north in the middle of the Red Sea Desert. Most definetly worth a gander.
