Safed is an ancient city, dating back to the era of the Second Temple, nestled in the mountains and soaring above the Sea of Galilee. Safed's sanctity was born from its mystical or Kabbalistic roots, dating back to Rabbi Isaac Luria (the Ari) in the 15th Century. It has managed to preserve a profound sense of mysticism, alongside breathtaking panoramic views of northern Israel. It is said that when the Messiah comes, he will come from Safed. Until that time, it is an excellent place to immerse yourself in history, spirituality and nature.
