Caesarea is a fascinating crossroads between the past and the future, where the new city is dressed up with magnificent houses dating back to Roman times, while the ancient city displays the ruins of unique constructions, thus offering a delight for lovers of Roman history.

This city stands as a living testimony to the coexistence between the ancient and the modern. While golf enthusiasts enjoy golf courses in serene settings, visitors can relive horse racing at the National Park's grand racecourse. In the modern districts of Caesarea, serenity blends with splendid contemporary architecture, contrasting with the lively tourist activity of ancient Caesarea, where visitors flock to contemplate the wonders of the past, erected by the great King Herod, one of the most outstanding builders of the ancient world.


Spanning just 500 dunams (500,000 square meters), Caesarea is home to architectural remains spanning from the Hellenistic era (3rd century BC) to the Crusader era (12th century). In that period, Caesarea was the capital of Israel and a thriving port, bestowed as a gift to King Herod by Augustus Caesar himself. During the Byzantine period, the city became a significant Christian center, home to prominent figures such as Origen and Eusebius. 
According to Christian tradition, this was where the Roman centurion Cornelius became the first idol worshipper converted to Christianity.
