Nitzana/Nizzana is the little village/kibbutz near the border with Egypt. Near Nitzana is located Tel Nitzana with the ruins of Turkish-German hospital from the beginning of the 20th century. Under the hill are ruins of the Byzantine church. From the hill is beautiful view around. You can see the ruins of Turkish train station with water tower and army airfield. Near train station you can find some old military stuff (probably form the times when army was using the airfield). There is a lot of spece to walk and to admire the desert and its forms. When army is not shooting at firing range and there are no jets you can enjoy absolute silence. The place is really worth to visit!!!

I wonder why I was the first to write a review, not mentioning to ask TA to open the page. It should have been visited and reviewed a long time before me. Nitsana is located not far from other Nabatean ruins: Shivta, Avdat, Mamashit and it is worth your time. Less impressive though than these other ones and therefore to be seen only after them. The desert is always an incredible place to visit and linger in ... So if on the fly you stop there ... All the better. I have attached many pictures to give you a better feel of the place. Just one thing, the building on the top of the hill is ...not a Nabatean ruin but an old Turkish hospital from the early 1900'ies. From the hill you have a beautiful view of the desert around and especially this disaffected landing runway ... which make it kind of unreal. And as always in the Desert this incredible silence troubled only by the wind ...
