Caesarea’s “Byzantine Street” is well hidden behind the parking lot near the northern entrance.. It is a bit hard to reach, but well worth the effort! – two collosal statues decorate a plaza, paved by Marble and mosaics.

An inscription in the mosaic indicate restorations in the 6th Century CE, but the sculptures are from Roman times, most likely one of Zeus, and one of Hadrian.
