Gazelle Valley

  Trapped between busy roads, housing developments and a modern super-highway, this rich wildlife habitat flourishes right in the midst of the urban heartland. Ancient pine tree groves, remnants of old vineyards, and different types of fruit trees are mixed with dense Mediterranean scrublands. Rich biodiversity area with a large variety of plant species, some rare, protected and endemic. In winter, the Gazelle Valley is one of the most beautiful flowering spots in the city, with carpets of blossoming geophytes and annual plants. Gazelle, porcupine and other mammals comprise only a few of the many animal species that habitat this unique urban biodiversity hotspot, and sustain on the local natural resources. Ten species of reptiles and nine types of butterflies were observed (all protected).  A significant foraging site for birds. Pedestrian, car and public transportation access, parking facilities available
