“Mountainside Spring and Village” – Tour of Lifta

Let us set forth on a tour of natural and man-made panoramas on the outskirts of Jerusalem, to the village of Lifta.

Adjacent to the entrance to the city of Jerusalem, the village of Lifta has existed for hundreds of years, spread across the pastoral panorama of the hills of Jerusalem. Village life surrounded one central spring. Hundreds of years ago, an aqueduct was dug in the ground in order to increase water flow and allow irrigation. Since then Lifta has undergone many changes and upheavals, yet the site maintained its special charm by the entrance to the city.


Let us set forth on a tour tracing the history, plant life, and water of Lifta.
