ARCHAEOLOGICAL EXCURSION TO ROSH HANIKRA AND MONTFORT CASTLE

Craig Spence SDB

September 25 2018 - Rosh Hanikra Grottoes - Nahariya On September 25 th 2018, the year of Archaeological Excursions began with visits to Rosh Hanikra and Montefort Castle. Fr Piotr Zelazko once again led the excursion. In a full bus, the student body departed for the beautiful Rosh Hanikra, home to beautiful limestone cliffs and naturally created grottoes. Fr Piotr led the tour of the grottoes and explained the history of the old British train tunnel between Israel and Lebanon. The participants ascended via the infamous cable-car for a visit to the Montfort Castle.

After lunch at Goren Park, the group began the 45-minute hike to the old Crusader castle. It was wonderful to be in such a location surrounded by such history. A short hike to the bus and the return trip home ended another wonderful excursion to begin the new Academic Year.
