Roman Capital, Caesarea

About this place

Remains of the 14 km double aqueduct which brought water to Caesarea and its fields is so well preserved that it was repaired and used by a small settlement of Bosnians in the 19th century. Abandoned during the early Arab period a much smaller Caesarea, enclosed by a wall and a moat, was a major Crusader site.

Serving as the administrative capital and seat of the Roman procurators, it was here that Paul was imprisoned prior to being sent to Rome (Acts 23:23-35). Here too thousands of Jews were killed by the Romans after the desecration of a synagogue led to demonstrations, igniting the Jewish Revolt against the Romans.
