The Harod Spring originates in a rocky cave on Mount Gilboa and flows along the park’s lawns. According to the Bible the stream is where Gideon chose soldiers to fight the Midianites, with only 300 of them passing the test and accompanying Gideon in his conquest. Above the spring is the Hankin Museum which tells the story of Yehoshua Hankin, who purchased land in the valley in the early days of the Zionist enterprise. Group visits to the museum should be reserved by phone. A beautiful view of the valley can be enjoyed form the courtyard of the museum. A nearby cave was designated by Hankin as a tomb for himself and his wife Olga. The cave has two stone columns at the entrance, reminiscent of Talmudic-era caves. How to get there: Off road 71, 10km from Afula, adjacent to Moshav Gidona.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year.
For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
