From the Negev to Eilat
Be'er-Sheba National Park -- this city that Abraham founded (Gen. 21:31) marked the southern border of biblical Israel (1 Sam. 3:20). Beersheba also shows fascinating evidence of urban planning from the time of the Judean monarchy, a unique water system and other finds that, along with its biblical significance, have accorded Beersheba a place on UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites.
Avdat National Park -- an important stop on the Incense Route, and a World Heritage Site, Avdat's Nabatean temple, which was converted into a church, reveals a fabulous Negev panorama, while its wine-press reveals the inhabitants' uncanny skill at cultivating the desert and ancient private dwellings and tombs complete the picture.
The Uvda Valley -- containing over 150 prehistoric and early settlement sites, including the Nahal Asharun site and the Leopard Temple.
