For a brief period during February, the south is painted beautiful shades of red by the beautiful spring Anemones that fill the area. The Western Negev is a unique phytogeographical region in Israel and throughout the day, we will explore some of the areas unique attractions
The areas dry, river beds flow into the Mediterranean Sea via the Western Negev and Gaza Strip. One of those wadis, the Besor, is famous for its hanging bridge straddling the entire river bed.
Our final stop will be at the hidden synagogue of ancient Maon, otherwise known as Maon of the south and not to be confused with Maon in the southern Hebron hills! The synagogue gives a look into Jewish life in the area of Gaza during the reign of the Byzantine empire over the holy land and features one of the most intricate mosaic floors from the period.
