AKKO (or Acre) is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, dating back to the era of the Egyptian pharaoh Thutmose. The city has been built in layers, one over the top of the other. An excellent example of the Ottoman architecture is the Ahmed al-Jezzar Pasha Mosque. This walled city has tunnels, underground working aqueduct, traces of Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Muslims, Crusaders, Ottomans, Bedouins and British who have all ruled here. The affects of the 1948 Arab-Israeli War can be seen.
