Tel Gimzo

Opposite Gimzo (See Map)

Tel Gimzo hides within it ancient history of Jewish settlement, and following that a period of Arab settlement.

From the heights of the Tel views can be seen of Latrun, Lod valley, and Herzliya on the horizon. In the east the houses of Modiin can be seen, in the west Kfar Daniel, and in the north Ben Shemen forest. The panoramic view becomes even more impressive at sunrise and sunset.

Almond trees, rows of prickly pear cactus loaded with fruit, orache and thorn bushes grow on the Tel.

At the top of the Tel stands the “Mitzpe HaShnayim” memorial, in memory of two members of the army’s religious “pluga” (company), who fell during the War of Independence.

It is also possible to reach the viewing point by steps from the direction of the Gimzo community.
