“Muhraka” (or “Muhraqa”) is by Christian Carmelite tradition the site of the confrontation between Elijah and 450 prophets of Ba’al (I kings 18), which ended with the big consuming fire (in Arabic – “Muhraka”).
The site is maintained by the Carmelites, and while it does not bear any real archaeological evidence, it provides stunning views of both the coaster plain, and the Galilee.
