The Carmelite monastery rises at the top of Mount Carmel. Next to it is a church and a vantage point with a marvelous view. The place is called "El-Mukhraka" (Place of the Fire) to commemorate Elija the Prophet's offering, that was consumed by fire here. A statue of the prophet with a sword in his hand stands in the courtyard of the monastery.
