Antiquities, gardens, springs, breathtaking views, award-winning wineries and great hiking trails are just a few things the Samaria (Shomron) region has to offer visitors. The Shomron has seen many battles throughout its long history, but also lots of mysteriousness, too. The Children of Israel lived in this area, and Mount Gerizim, which is located in the region, is considered holy to Samaritans, who claim descent from the tribes of Efraim and Menashe. The Samaritans hold most of their festivals on Mount Gerizim.The first place I recommend going to see when you arrive in the Shomron area is State’s Lookout, from which you’ll have an incredible panoramic view of the region.
