Masada

Judea and Samaria

Masada – the fortress of king Herod the Great – is a symbol of Jewish Freedom.

The Massada National Park was declared a UNESCO Wold Heritage Site in 2001. The fortress is build on a natural plateau overlooking the Dead Sea. At the bottom you can still see the outline of the Roman camps that besieged Masada. To feel the massive structure of Masada we recommend to actually take the stairs up but if you cannot - the cable car is a fast and easy way up.
