Virtual Tour @Caesarea The Story of Water

Caesarea: Rome’s capital in Israel. Josephus considered it the main source of the Jordan River, and the ancient Greeks claimed the water that fed the Jordan flowed from the nearby cave. The truth may lie somewhere in the middle. Our guide, Shahar, will take us on a journey to discover the truth behind Caesarea and its intriguing story of water.

Once inhabited by the Greeks and the Romans, this ancient desert city with its aquifers, aqueducts, wells and grottos was a constant source of fresh clean water, both for drinking for ordinary citizens and the bath houses of their conquerors.
