Caesarea Maritima ("by the Sea") is located on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea in the center of Israel, in the middle between Haifa and Tel-Aviv. The site was an important Roman city, and played an important role in the history of Ancient Israel. The city later decayed after the Arab conquest (8th Century AD).
Built by Herod the Great in around 25-32 BC, it was a great commercial centre during the Byzantine Period.
This National Park features centuries of history showing the many different periods of Hellenistic, Phoenician, Hasmonean and Roman rule. The city was continually razed and rebuilt as each new sovereign leader came to power.
