Tel Maresha is a Biblical site in the southern low hills of Judea (the Shephela). It is first mentioned in the book of Joshua, and was fortified by Rehoboam (I Chr. 11:8).
In Persian times Edomeans and Tyrians populated the site, forming many caves for various functions.
Maresha was excavated by several expeditions, and offers a unique experience of touring an underground city.
