Akko Old Town, Acre, Northern District, Israel

Acre is a magnificent historic walled port-city with continuous settlement from the Phoenician period dating back to 1104.

The original foundations lie almost intact, both above and below today’s street level, providing an exceptional picture of the layout and structures of the capital of the medieval Crusader kingdom of Jerusalem.

The present city is characteristic of a fortified town dating from the Ottoman 18th and 19th centuries, with typical urban components such as the citadel, mosques, khans and baths.
