Walking Tour in Sarona
Wednesday, July 23 from 18.30 for 1½ to 2 hours.
Tour guide: Julia Newman (052-329-3060)
Meet at the corner of Ibn Gvirol and Kaplan, next to Discount Bank.
On our tour, we will follow the footsteps of the German pioneers, learn about their life and achievements, visit a restored olive press, and will make ourselves at home in the renewed SARONA – the new beating heart of the sleepless metropolis.
The Templer settlement of Sarona was one of the first modern agricultural settlements in Palestine and became a model for the Jewish pioneers. In August 1871, the Templers purchased 60 hectares of land from a Greek monastery north of Jaffa, and soon after the foundation stones were laid for the first houses. By 1889, 269 people lived in Sarona. There were 41 homes, a communal hall, a winery, workshops, barns and sheds. The Sarona colonists brought modern farming tools and practices to the Holy Land.
After the declaration of the Independence, most of the old German houses became part of the Dori military base.
Since 2003, the Tel Aviv municipality has been working to preserve and restore Sarona. To make way for a highway, techniques were developed for moving some of the houses to a more convenient location.
