Ein Kerem (2P and 3P) and Monastery of St. John in the Desert (1P)

Ein Kerem is the birth place of John the Baptist, forerunner of Jesus Christ. The monastery of John in the desert is believed to be the place where he hid from King Herod, later to be beheaded by the same. These valleys and plains are considered by many as the place where John spent his childhood and youth....away from human presence as mentioned in Bible.
