Bar Kokhba Caves

The various underground tactical caves carved in the Shefelah region were made in preperation for a second Jewish attempt to rebel against the Romans, which occurred in the years 132-135 CE.

This second Jewish  rebelleion against Rome ended also with a terrible defeat,  and it was the last Jewish attempt to achieve independance in the Holy Land in antiquity.  

  • After crawling in one of the hiding caves of these Jewish rebels, you finally realise why this region is called “The Holey land :-)”.

Book a Private Tour to the Bar-Kokhba Caves

There are several locations in the Shefelah where one can crawl in caves from the time of the Bar-Kokhba rebelleion.

Contact me for a proposal of a full day tour of Shefelah, that will also include this unique activity.
