Safed (Tsfat” in Hebrew) was established as a hugh fort by the Crusaders, in the 12th century.

The residential area developing around it became in the 16th century an important Jewish Rabbinical center, especially for the study of Kabbalah. Yosef Karo Synagogue  represents R. Karo’s important work in Jewish religious law, and two synaogues present the heritage or “Ha’ari Hakadoshwikipedia s.

Today’s old city of Safed is a popular tourist attraction, presenting old local synagogues among many Judaica art galleries.
