Welcome to Caesarea’s harbor
Among the abundance of tourist sites that relate the story of ancient Israel is the magnificent story of Caesarea. A visit to the national park and ancient port, a tour of the hippodrome and Roman amphitheater, a walk among the impressive palace ruins cannot be complete without observing the splendor displayed in the new Visitors' Center.
An exhibition, incorporating historical content, a media presentation and rare archaeological artifacts found during the excavation of the land and the seabed, has been established within the four vaults that date back 2,000 years.
The impressive media presentation, shown on the wall of one of the original vaults, demonstrates Herod's complex and headstrong character, a man who loved to build and established the city and the port.
