Restored Castle Now Israeli Boutique Hotel!

Scotland may come to mind when you think of lodging in a former castle, but this one is in Tiberias overlooking the Sea of Galilee. An authentic, restored castle that was built in 1745 by the son of the Bedouin ruler of the Galilee, Dona Castle Boutique Hotel is located on a colorful street named for Dona Gracia Mendes Nasi, a 16th-century Portuguese Jewish businesswoman who helped build up Tiberias.

Originally, the citadel was connected to the Ottoman-era wall that surrounded the city. In 1837, an earthquake damaged the castle, which was later rebuilt to house a Spanish school in 1925 and, more recently, an art gallery.

In 2007, the castle was converted into a boutique hotel and artist workshops. Its six suites are furnished in a hybrid ancient and modern style. You can have your breakfast served at the swimming pool or rooftop bar.

Safed: A Special City in Israel

Something special in the air of Safed (Tzfat) sets the city apart from any other.

Maybe it’s the altitude, at 900 meters (2,952 feet) above sea level. Maybe it’s the Jewish mysticism that took root here in the 16th century and still flourishes. Or maybe it’s the magnificent views.

From this 15-square-mile city in the mountains of Israel’s Upper Galilee, you can see east to the Golan Heights, north to Mount Hermon and Lebanon, west to Mount Meron, and south to Tiberias and Lake Kinneret (Sea of Galilee).

People from across the world visit Safed to soak up its homegrown art, music, and spirituality.
