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 .
