Caesarea is on the Mediterranean coast north of Tel Aviv.
Herod, who ruled from 37 to 4 BCE, built this port city
in honor of his patron Octavian Agustus Caesar.
The Caesarea National Park extends from the Roman theater in the
south to the Crusader city in the north. It includes the Byzantine
square, Herodian amphitheater, promontory palace, bathhouse, a network
of streets, and more.
