The Markets

There are 3 main markets in Acres: the White market (Elbiad market), the Turkish bazaar and the Acres market. for centuries the smell of fresh spices, the sounds and colors of the markets, are an inseparable part of the city’s atmosphere. an authentic experience alongside with newly opened designer shops, a day at the market is a guaranteed pleasure. don’t leave without some Halva, olive oil and baklava! It might be the best part of your vacation

The Knights’ Halls

Time travelling back to the Crusaders era, the Knights Halls provides a fascinating experience. The halls, which served for for living, ceremonies and even as a jail, were discovered only in the early 1990’s. The hall’s ceilings are covered with impressive rare arches, and vast parts of the complex are still being uncovered and researched today. The Knights Halls offers a peak under the surface of Acres, where many treasures are yet to be found.

Hummus of Galilee

Acres is full of local humus restaurants, but any Tel Avivian knows that “Sa-id” and “shamessia” in the acres market are the best of Galilee and even israel. The line outsite these restaurants is a proof of this title, but patiance pays off. A little tip: take a “maheluta” to go!
