Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What travellers are saying
- This is exactly what Herodion is talking about: a huge earthwork, implemented by the will of Herod "the great" (reigning from 37 to 4BC), with the aim of regularizing the shape of a pre-existing hill, to the point of making it a work almost totally human. Then the hill was further raised, and a fortress-palace was built on its summit, with walls between 15 and 20 meters high, but which after the addition of earth around their base emerged "only" 10 meters. The message being launched is that of an autocracy that fears no rivals.
Inside the fortress, there was everything necessary to ensure a luxurious life for the ruler and his court: an aqueduct from the Bethlehem area, which fed the baths and cisterns; the baths and cisterns themselves; luxurious halls; dormitories for the servants, cellars and kitchens. With regard to this whole complex, it is necessary to work with imagination on the ruined walls, on the underground paths, on the dusty plateaus, to imagine the original appearance.
At the base of the hill, flat, another Herodion, with buildings, terraces, basins and gardens, arranged over a very large area, and whose remains are (once again) a pale echo of how it must have appeared originally .
Overall, this is the most instructive visit that can document the splendid and ephemeral life of the Kingdom of Judea at the time of its vassalage to the Romans.Written 4 March 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This is a small park situated along a quiet stream with lots of picnic tables sitting under shady trees. It seems to be a popular spot for families. We visited to see the ruins of a Crusader fortified farm called Acqua Bella that dates from 1160. The front wall standing 12m high is pretty impressive. There are more rooms and ruins to explore inside although the site itself is not large. Since the ruin is located within the national park, you have to pay the full entrance fee of 22 shekels per person to see it. It’s a 15 minute walk along the stream to reach the ruin. The ruin was empty when we were there on a weekday afternoon so we had the whole place to ourselves. There’s lots of parking and toilets too.Written 18 June 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- My first time there as it is relatively new as a National Park.
People drive a lot by this place from Tel Aviv or Giv'at Ze'ev to Jerusalem but few stop there.
Many religious people come here to pray and this makes this place special.
Besides this religious aspect and the archeological findings, the views on Jerusalem and all the surroundings, 360 degrees, is absolutely beautiful and only for this it is well worth your time.
Just look at the pictures, I believe they'll convince you.Written 29 September 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- One of the newer National Parks, it provides beautiful vistas of Jerusalem and the Judean desert. A unique site where debris from the Mount is sifted with amazing findings.
