Only fifteen miles north of Caesarea is the lovely and historic town of Zichron Ya'acov founded by Baron Edmond de Rothschild in 1882 who was one of the great benefactors of the Jewish community living in the land of Israel at the time. Today some of the family tombs rest in beautiful gardens filled with the flowers and other plants the Rothschild family helped develop in Israel. The public is invited to visit the gardens and gravesites. During World War I the town became famous for Jewish spies working for the British against the Ottomans. Tales of intrigue abound.
The main street, Rehov Hameyasdim (also known as Wine's Way), is lined with quaint red-shingled buildings many with plaques explaining their history. Gas light fixtures of the 19th century and cobblestones complete the town's special ambience. Small shops, artists'galleries, café's and restaurants line the quiet street. A nearby winery provides opportunities for wine-tasting. This is just the place for a little downtime from a busy tour.
