The Ancient City of Acco (Acre)

Acco-Acre-Ancient Walled City

Even though I am “Not in India”, there are exciting and fascinating sites to see everywhere. I went on a guided tour of the Ancient city of Acco (Acre) this weekend, (I did not have the time to photograph the winding alleyways, souk, bazaar etc., – one of the drawbacks of being in a group – but the few things I did manage to shoot will give you some small idea of the sites and perhaps one day you will come visit yourself!! ) and it was much more interesting than I could have imagined, as well as beautiful to see these ancient walls and buildings still in use after so many centuries. The original history of Acco goes back 5000 years (!) but even the current remains of walls and buildings are centuries old. Hope you enjoy this tiny glimpse into the beauty of this intriguing city.
