Rosh Hanikra Israel.

Rosh HaNikra ( “head of the grottos”) is a geologic formation in Israel, located on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, in the Western Galilee near the border with Lebanon. It is a white chalk cliff face which opens up into spectacular grottos.

The Rosh HaNikra grottos are cavernous tunnels formed by sea action on the soft chalk rock. The total length is some 200 meters. They branch off in various directions with some interconnecting segments. In the past, the only access to them was from the sea and experienced divers were the only ones capable of visiting. Today a cable car takes visitors down to see the grottos.

There is a tell about a young bride who was forced to marry old and rich men from Tyre (a city in Lebanon). Therefore, on the way to her wedding when she arrived at the top of the rock, she jumped down to the sea. She was vanished in the sea and never seen again. If you listen carefully when you are in the caves you can still hear her moaning.
