Then we will make a visit to Tannourine village where we can get the opportunity to visit St Challita Old Crusade Church that ages more than 1000 years. Later a tour in Balaa: it’s an easy walk down to reach a platform. There, we will see the waterfall of Balaa into the Baatara Pothole “The cave” also known as the “Cave of the Three Bridges“, the three natural bridges rising one above the other, and take a lot of unforgettable pictures.
