Zichron Yaakov Travel Guide: 41 reviews and 174 photos
Zichron Ya’acov is located off Route # 652 between Route #70 and Route # 4 (the Tel Aviv Haifa road). It is half an hour from Haifa and 15 minutes from Caesarea.
In the main street, Hameyasdim Street, are small red-roofed 19th century homes and part of the road is still of cobblestone. The courtyards, which once held animals, now have antique shops, crafts shops and boutiques. About half way down the street is Bet Aaronson, once the home of accomplished agronomist Aaron Aaronson (1876-1919) who gained international fame for his discovery of an ancestor of modern wheat. The house remains the same as it looked after WW1, with family photographs and French and Turkish furniture. Also his library and diaries.
As you walk down Hameyasdim Street be sure to take note of the signs on the various buildings. They provide information about Zichron Ya’acov’s past. Whether you decide to attend an afternoon harp concert, visit one of the museums or simply want to stroll the settlement’s main street, Zichron Ya’acov is certainly worth a visit.
