Caesarea

City of Roman Kings

Herod the Great ruled the Land of Israel from 37 to 4 B.C. During that time he constructed a large port city called Caesarea to honor Roman Caesar Augustus. The project was built on the remains of an earlier Phoenician city called Stratton’s tower.

Once it was completed Caesarea took on even more importance than Jerusalem and became the heart of Roman rule in the Land of Israel. Herod built a port in the bay, and erected all the cultural institutions found in every great Greco-Roman city – a theater, a hippodrome,  and a luxurious bathhouse. Today the site also includes an exciting audio-vision production on the construction of the port 2,000 years ago, arty shops and restaurants, and hologram figures from the past who speak to you!
