Masada Tours in Israel

Masada , a designated World Heritage Site of UNESCO, is a rugged ancient fortress in the Judean Desert built around 30 B. C. The ancient site is of great pride to the Jewish people and is situated on a massive plateau overlooking the Dead Sea. Masada was destroyed after a Jewish rebellion and last stand facing the Roman army in 73 A.D. Among the ruins are King Herod's Palace, which spreads over 3 terraces, and a Roman-style bathhouse with mosaic floors. The Masada Museum has archaeological exhibits and features recreations of historical scenes.
