Yehiam Fortress National Park

Archaeology and History

The Yehi'am Fortress probably began as a Crusader estate, and was destroyed by the Mamluk Sultan Baibars 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 Yehiam 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
