National Sites, Archaeology and History
In 1878 (1878), a group of young Jews who were fed up with the "Haluka" funds left the old settlement in Safed and tried to settle in a new place and to work the land there, but they tried to maintain an agricultural settlement called "Gai Oni" with only a few families.
In 1882 about 30 families of Hovevei Zion members came from Moinset, Romania, and established an agricultural colony called Rosh Pina. (Tehilim, 22:12) On the picturesque and enchanting restoration site, you will get a glimpse of life at the beginning of Zionism in the Galilee. Here awaits the reconstruction of the first colony, its houses and public buildings: the house of clerks, Professor's house, the synagogue, the teacher's house, the Alter Schwartz hotel, the first settlers' homes, the cave of Shlomo Ben Yosef and Mitzpe Nimrod. There is also the historical archive of the colony, art galleries, cafes and restaurants.
