Golan, Israel

Metula is Israel’s northernmost town, a quiet and pleasant place, built of a ridge of hills with a view of Mt. Hermon and the green Galilee landscapes.

This serene town, right next to the Lebanese border, attracts many tourists and vacationers who come to visit historical, nature and activity sites in the region. Metula was founded in 1896 by Baron Edmond de Rothschild as a moshava, a semi-cooperative agricultural community, and most of its founding families were agricultural workers from established comunities in Israel’s coastal region. After Israel’s War of Independence, a few more neighborhoods were added to the moshava, which grew into a rural town. Most of Metula’s early settlers earned their livelihood from agriculture. Along the winding road to this moshava visitors will see peach and plum orchards that are covered in pink and white blossoms in the spring.
