Everyone loves Zippori. Even today you can still feel the culture, the grandeur, the power of wealth there. This hill in the Lower Galilee has seen countless incarnations during its existence and is still one of the most fascinating places in the country. Zippori’s inhabitants were no great heroes. They just wanted to live well, and peacefully. They cherished art, wine, clear-cut rules and faith. No wonder Jews, Muslims and Christians fell in love with the place.
