Herods great harbour

There are plenty of archeological sites from the Roman and Byzantine eras throughout Israel, but Caesarea stands out. The harbour was fortified by Herod the Great and was an important port for many years. Natural disruptions and political changes led to many times this place has been destroyed and rebuilt. Especially the temple mount has been used for different buildings and religions over time.

Today Caesarea is a tourist place with a very good infrastructure. You will find many bars and restaurants, will be introduced to the site by movies and there is also a beach and a diving school. Main sights are the harbour and the ancient theatre – but excavation and restoring works are still ongoing.
