masada will never fall again
On an isolated clifftop in the heart of the desert, a lofty plateau overlooking the Dead Sea and the untamed landscape of the Judean Desert, there once stood a magnificent palace.
In the days of the Great Revolt, the last of the rebels against Rome entrenched themselves at Masada, and turned their desperate fight into a symbol of the struggle for freedom. Because of the enthralling historic events that took place on the mountain, and the archaeological finds that have been revealed there, UNESCO has declared Masada National Park a World Heritage Site.

We had a really interesting day with Meir who was very flexible in regard to accomodate the tour to our whishes. Meir shared not only his knowledge on the historical sites we had chosen to visit, but also his points of view on the current political situation in Israel and the West Bank and his very interesting personal history.
