“Cave of the Patriarchs”  (or “Cave of the Machpela”) is a complex in Hevron apperently built by Herod over the traditional tomb site of the Patriarchs Abraham Isaac and Jacob and the Matriarchs Sarah, Rebbecah, and Leah.

limited research at the site discoverd a Canaanite era double tomb beneath the complex, but it is not open to the public, and it’s general entry is heavily secured and limited.
