We will spend the night at Neveh Shalom, a unique settlement where Arabs and Jews live together in harmony, promoting peace between religions, nestled beneath the Latrun Trappist monastery, The Trappist Monastery At Latrun was founded by the French Trappist Monks in 1890. The Trappists are a strict sect of Cistercian monks, who keep a vow of silence. It is also known as the Monastery of Silence.
The Monks also established a successful vineyard at the site and today produce a fine variety of wines.
The Trappist Monastery At Latrun has a small garden, a church you can visit, and it provides a nice view of the Ayalon Valley. Also, you can purchase their local wine, brandy, olive oil, and spices in their small store.
The following morning, after a visit to the monastery, we will ride to Tel Gezer, an ancient settlement with more than 5000 years of history and a fascinating water system recently excavated for public viewing.
