Gadara (“Fence” in Aramaic) was probably founded in the Hellenistic period.
Built and designed as “Polis”, in Roman times it was a member of the “Decapolis” which is also mentioned in the New Testament.
Excavations uncovered a well preserved theatre, Catherdral, Decumanos Maximos, and elaborate water system to a big bath complex, and more.
From the site one gets also a great view of the Sea of Galilee and the Golan Heights .
