Yehiam Fortress National Park

The Yehi'am Fortress probably began as a Crusader estate, and was destroyed by the Mamluk Sultan Baibars destroyed the fortress in 1265. Most of the remains – including walls, towers and a moat – were built in the 18th century by the Bedouin ruler Daher al-Omar. They are a romantic backdrop for the Sukkot Yehi’am Renaissance Festival. Panoramic views of Western Galilee await at the top of the fortress, which was the first home for the pioneers who established Kibbutz Yehi’am in 1946.
