The town of Acre is located on the Mediterranean coast, in the northern part of the coast of Israel. The town has a strategically important position, at the northern end of the natural port in Haifa Bay. There is numerous archaeological evidence that the old city area has been continuously inhabited since the Middle Bronze Age, which makes Acre one of the oldest settlements in the world. Unfortunately, it was conquered and destroyed several times. Acre was one of the most important ports during the Crusades wars. The old part of the city is on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list. Favorite locations for visitors are Hospitaller fortress, Al-Jazzar Mosque, Citadel of Acre, and Hammam al-Basha. Every year the city attracts many pilgrims of Baháʼí Faith, to whom this is the holiest city.
