Caesarea Theater, Israel

From series “Ancient Amphitheaters and Arenas, That Are Still Operational”
In Israel, an operating amphitheater is situated in the city of Caesarea. The history of the ancient city is not simple. For hundreds of years it has repeatedly been destroyed by conquerors. The sea hasn’t spared the city either. Part of its territory was completely flooded. The main witness of a number of important historical events was an ancient Roman amphitheater, which archaeologists managed to discover in the 20s of the last century.

Caesarea Theater, Israel After the completion of archaeological works and a complete reconstruction, the amphitheater has been used again. Today, performances and music concerts, as well as other important public events are held here. The amphitheater is relatively small and can accommodate only 4000 spectators. But this fact does not diminish its great historical significance. During the archaeological excavations a lot of important artefacts were found. One of the most significant is an ancient monument with the inscription ‘Pontius Pilate’.

Caesarea is remarkable not only for its wonderful amphitheater. In the immediate vicinity of the main attraction of the city there are many other historical buildings. Archaeologists have discovered sites of ancient temples, Roman baths and ruins of once luxurious palaces, as well as an ancient race track, which also hosted the most spectacular events.
