Tour > Caesarea
Along the coast of the Mediterranean, this city was an impressive port active in the Roman era.
Caesarea is known in biblical history as the home of Cornelius the centurion where Peter first preached to the Gentiles in Acts 10, as well as where Pontius Pilate lived. A small but impressive port city, Caesarea featured architecture orchestrated by Herod the Great, including aqueducts, an outdoor amphitheater (still used today) and a hippodrome for sporting events. As you walk through the centuries-old locations of this National Park, you can begin to imagine what this influential city and harbor would have looked like in the height of the Roman Empire.
