Acre is a city in northern Israel and one of the oldest continuously inhabited sites in the country.
The present day town of Akko closely resembles the way the town looked during the 18th and 19th centuries of the Ottoman empire. It is very close to the way other Ottoman towns looked. Typical Ottoman towns had a wall around them, which is still present in Akko today. Akko also still retains many of its old mosques, khans and baths.Because of its outstanding universal value, the old city of Acrecity was added by UNESCO to its World Heritage List in 2001.
