Masada

Masada, Judean Desert Mountain Top FortressThere is hardly a visitor to Israel who doesn’t tour the mountain-top fortress at Masada. This site in the Judean Desert near the shores of the Dead Sea is spectacular. At Masada you’ll see the splendor of one of Herod the Great’s major building projects. And you’ll learn about the last stand of the Great Jewish Revolt against the mighty Roman Empire. Before leaving Masada, you’ll surely understand why it’s been recognized by the United Nations as a world heritage site. A ‘must’ for any first-time visitor to David’s Land.
