Timna is a marvellous geological park beautifully set in the Negev desert. It also shows the remains of an ancient copper mine, of the oldest of its sort in the world. If you happen to sunbathe in Eilat this is certainly a nice day tour. It could also fill a gap of Ancient Egyptian sites, non-European technological properties and desert landscapes.
