The medieval side of Zfat (Safed)


How did the great Kabbalists, Rabbi Yitzchak Luria, Rabbi Moshe Cordovero, Rabbi Moshe Alshich and many others live ? For several centuries, parts of Zfat have been repeatedly destroyed by earthquakes. However, a small part of the medieval part is still existing in the old city. Here are a few photos in order to give you an impression:
