Herod’s Palace in Caesarea

caesarea herods palaceBuilt on a protruding cliff over the sea, Herod’s palace was a daring desgin demonstrating the King’s extravagance –  and paranoia. The Palace was probably used also by the succeeding Roman governors. It is possible that in this palace Paul appeared in front of two governors, as documented in the Book of Acts.

In the Byzantine Period the palace went out of use. A chapel was built over part of it, and a public lartine was installed next to its entrance.
