Step back in time as you walk this ancient port city. The city is the former capital of the Crusader kingdom and the birthplace of the Bahai religion. A Hospitaller Castle, Templar Tunnel and the largest prison during the British Mandate (now a museum) can all be found here. Acre is UNESCO World Heritage Site.
A very special thank you goes out to Raanan Kislev, a Conservation Architect with the Israel Antiquities Authority’s Conservation Department. He and his colleagues, Architects Yael Fuhrmann and Adi Kitov and Engineer Ofer Cohen provided invaluable background material as well as photographs for this section.
