When we stood on the balcony of the monastery of Muhraqa on Mount Carmel, the overlook offered a stunning panorama of the surroundings that stretched out before us.
At nearly 1640 feet above sea level, Mount Carmel offers a pristine view of its surroundings—especially of the Jezreel Valley. Arrows painted on the balcony floor point to notable hills in the distance:
the Hill of Moreh
They all protrude from the valley floor like soldiers, strong and tall.
