I enjoyed walking about, looking at the flowers, which were just starting to put on a show on a chilly February day. The tile mosaics are spectacular, with good descriptions of what they are about. A magical place, highly recommended.

The main recommendation is: don't come at weekends. When the site is empty, it's unbelievable. The mosaics of the ancient synagogue should NOT be missed.

You have to book ahead. The park is located in the nature and they don't provide guides. It is expected that groups or individuals book before
