Hiding among Banana groves of the nearby Kibbutz, The eastern Hippodrome of Caesarea was probably built in the days of Emperor Hadrian, and accomodated some 30,000 spectators. Although it is documented since the 19th century, the structure is still waiting to be excavated, and is used as a wheat field (!).
However, in 2000 its decorative obelisk was re-erected.
