Not far from Netanya are the ruins of Qaqun castle, the very first mention of which dates back to the 12th century. Built on a hilltop, it served as a fortification intended for the defense of the city. Today the castle is of great historical interest: according to some information, the first buildings existed on its site in prehistoric times. Some of the stones used in the construction of the fortress are decorated with unique antique ornaments.
The city also has a very unusual facility - the Tractor's History Museum that was opened in an old renovated hangar. The museum exhibition includes about a hundred vehicles. Some of them are in the open air, while the others are permanently stored in the hangar. Its most valuable exhibit is the 1920s McCormick Deering. Absolutely all the repaired vehicles presented in the museum are in running order.
Beit Beirut, a museum and urban cultural center housed in one of the Netanya's oldest buildings, acquaints visitors with the history of the city. The museum has a rich collection of various historical artifacts, including old-fashioned agricultural tools that were used by local farmers on their citrus orchards. In the museum, you can also see some important historical documents, old maps, and photo collections.
Despite the fact that it is located within the city, the district is commonly considered an independent settlement. The main attractions of the historic settlement are the ruins of an old castle and a tree whose age is more than 600 years.
