Hotels and tourist accommodations in Safed, Israel.

Following Israel’s War of Independence in 1948, Tzfat developed into an important tourist center of Northern Israel. The city’s clean mountain air, bohemian atmosphere, artists’ galleries and quaint lanes and alleyways attracted domestic and foreign visitors who enjoyed wandering around the historic Old City and Artist Quarter.

Throughout the years that bohemian atmosphere has been replaced by a more religious ambiance, bolstered by the city’s growing religious population. Yet tourists continue to arrive in ever-increasing numbers, drawn to explore different aspects of the town including Tzfat’s Kabbalistic traditions, historical sites and Jewishly-inspired artwork.
