This historical marker is located within the fortified walls of the Old City of Acre. Upon passing through the main gates of the Old City, turn immediately to your right, where tourist parking and the visitor's center are located. Once you have gone through the visitor center, you will step out into a good sized open courtyard. The historical marker is affixed to a wall of a small structure in the southeast corner of the courtyard. Marker is in this post office area: Acre, Haifa District 24112-02, Israel.
Other nearby markers. At least 4 other markers are within 16 kilometers of this marker, measured as the crow flies. The Crusader Fortress of the Knights of the Hospital and the Ottoman-Turkish Citadel of Akko (within shouting distance of this marker); The Shrine and Mansion of Bahá’u’lláh The German Colony Story (approx. 14 kilometers away); The Shrine of the Báb Terraces and Gardens (approx. 14.8 kilometers away).
More about this marker. I confess that my initial GPS readings proved to be inaccurate and when I began posting this marker those original GPS co-ordinates showed the marker as being situated just offshore from the fortified walls of the Old City, which I knew was not the case. So I recalculated using Google Maps and the map provided by the Akko website.
