Mount Tabor

Mount Tabor (Hebrew: הר תבור) is 575 metres above sea level located in the eastern end of the Jezreel Valley.

On the mountaintop there are two Christian churches:

The Latin (Franciscan) Church of the Transfiguration (or Church of the Savior) dates from 1924 but stands on the same site and reflects the plan of the earlier Crusader and Byzantine churches.

In the Greek area is the Church of St. Elias, built in 1845. It is a three-aisled basilica with four bays and the lower part of its apses may be early 12th century.
