The Bet Eshel Compound

Shloshet HaMitspim Street 1, Beer-Sheva, Israel
Activity duration:  1-2 hours

Historic site of national importance, the Bet Eshel Observatory was built in 1943 as part of an 'outposts plan', along with Kibbutz Revivim and Kibbutz Gvulot.

The place functioned as an agricultural settlement and farm until the outbreak of the War of Independence, at which time the site bravely withstood heavy bombing by the Egyptian army.

The site has been restored and renovated by the Jewish National Fund and declared a national monument.
