Horns of Hattin

The “Horns of Hattin” is an extinct volcano with two peaks, located in the lower Galilee, some 5 km west of Tiberias. On July 4th 1187 CE Saladin defeted at this site a Crusader force headed to Tiberias, a victory that led to a re-conquest of the Holy Land by the Muslims. 

In recent years Mediavel history fans assemble and reanact the battle at the site, every year on July 4th.
