Tel Dor is ancient city along the Mediterranean coast, about 10 km north of Caesarea , with a long and rich history.

The city was inhabited in most periods, and was especially an important site in Canaanite, Philistine, Israelite, Hellenistic and Roman times.

Besides the port the city was also known for its purple dye industry, which was based on the local murex shell.

In the late 19th century an attempt to mass produce glass bottles was made next to the site. In the 1980’s the abandoned facotry was turned it to a small but charming local archaeological museum.

And if snorkeling along the beach, one can still find murex shells.
