The aqueduct ruins of Caesarea is an ancient city founded by Herod the Great in 25 BCE. It flourished as a major port city during the height of the Roman Empire. After Herod’s death, it started to witness a tumultuous period before seeing a rebirth during the Byzantine period. In the middle ages, the city of Caesarea was conquered by Muslim invaders and became under the Rashidun Caliphate until the Crusaders liberated the city in the 11th century. Today, a great deal of ruins still stands over the old site of the ancient city of Caesarea – adjacent to the modern town inhabited by more than 4,000 people.
