Fortress "Safed" (Hebrew "Metsudat Tsfat")
Uploaded by Zhenya Shmuter

Over the centuries, the fortress was repeatedly built and destroyed by Jews, Romans, Arabs, Crusaders, Mamluks, Turks, and earthquakes. In the center of the fortress stood a 60-meter tower, from which it was possible to control all the nearby trade routes, which gave the city its name “Safed” (from the Hebrew root “tsofe” - to observe). Due to its strategic location, this city was the goal of any conqueror. In the 15-16th century, Safed was the administrative and trading capital of Galilee and the spiritual center of the entire Jewish people. This period is considered the "Golden Age" of the city.

  1. Mamelukes
