A fun day in Ramla: interesting, beautiful, special, and delicious.
3 main points you should visit:
The Arches Pool: An underground water reservoir built in the 8th century. It miraculously survived the earthquakes that struck Ramla over the decades. You go down the stairs and choose a boat. Now sail leisurely among the arches that are charmingly lit. It is an extraordinary place. As part of the “Israeli Shabbat” project, admission is free on Friday-Saturday.
The White Mosque (also known as the White Tower). Another Muslim building from the 14th century has been preserved in all its beauty. Start counting the stairs - 111 to the roof. Free admission.
Ramla Market: vegetables, fruits, clothes, pickles, housewares, and more and more. You must try Borax Baba (Borax Ramla). It is great.
