At the head of the Carmel mountain, between Zichron Yaakov and Binyamina, lies Ramat Ha’Nadiv – a nature park spanning 4,500 dunams used to commemorate Baron Benjamin Edmond de Rothschild, who is buried with his wife in a grave plot at the heart of the gardens.
This contrasting appearance of a blooming island, designed and meticulously set in the expanses of wild nature, is one of the charms of Zichron Yaakov.

Beit Aharonson – Nili Museum
The Aharnson House was established in Zichron Yaakov in 1956, next to the Aharonson family house, from which most of Nili’s underground activity was operated.
The museum documents and preserves the legacy of the Aharonson family members and members of the Nili underground. It recounts their bravery and courage and commemorates their contribution to the end of Turkish rule and the British entry into Israel. The museum thus offers its visitors a cultural and historical experience.
The memorial site is on a hill overlooking the sea, near the Artillery House, which serves as a central meeting and commemoration place for all soldiers and veterans of the Artillery Corps. Near the square’s eastern side is a memorial to the fallen soldiers of Zichron Yaakov.
In the centre of a stone-paved square carved from the rocks of Jerusalem, six rough concrete slabs were cast, shaped like cannon barrels, a kind of rampart whose cannon barrels point upwards in two directions. It is a breathtaking experience for any visitor.
