Uncovered already in the 1960’s, Caesarea’ ancient theatre was the first structure uncovered at the site. Later the theatre was restored for modern preformences, and is possibly the best location in Israel for a summer concert.
Originally built by King Herod in the First century, it accomodated 9000 spectators, with beutiful sculptures decorating its stage. The theatre of Caesarea is one of the most impressive finds in Israel.
