Jerusalem Festival of Light 2014: “Garden of Dreams” and “Tower of Light”

“Garden of Dreams” (Jaffa Gate Plaza) and “Tower of Light” (Tzahal Square) are both by Luminarie De Cagna (Italy). Interestingly, De Cagna is an Italian family-run business that was founded in 1930. In those days they illuminated buildings for festive occasions with gas and carbide lights. Since 2006 they have only used LEDs for their installations, which, they stress, greatly reduces the electricity consumption of their lavish constructions.

  1. Looks great. I must visit during the light festival. Perhaps next year?
    (next year in Jerusalem?)🙂

      Sure, but it is a mixed bag–some good, some not so good, and quite crowded. Impossible to see everything in one night! We try to allow 3 nights to see everything, and to come relatively early for the really crowded routes inside the Jewish Quarter.

    I once wrote tips for viewing the exhibit (parking, etc,). If you think you might be in Israel next summer I’ll send you the link.
