Megiddo

megiddo gateMegiddo is an ancient city-state located along an important pass of the “Via Maris”, the international high way that crossed the land of Israel.

Excavations at the site uncovered 25 layers of ruins indicating a long period of settlement, from Neolithic to Persian periods.

Megiddo is also identified with “Armageddon”, one of the battle sites at the end of times according to the Book of Revelations (16:16).

In 2019 remains of the Roman military camp of the VI legion “Ferrate” were uncovered in the fields west of the mound.

Megiddo National Park is in the northern Israel. It is about 1.5 hours drive north of Tel-Aviv, and takes about 2-3 hours to explore.
