The International Conservation Center‘s building is situated on the southern edge of the Old City of Acre, next to the city wall, in a building that offers remarkable views of Haifa Bay. It is a spacious, two-storey, 19th century residence, with an area of 1,000 square meters.
The building’s massive pillars and impressive supporting vaults, suggest that part of the structure may date back to the Crusader Period, when this sector formed part of the autonomous Pisan Quarter.
