Masada

Masada (pronounced Metzada - fortress) was fortified by Herod the Great between 31 & 37 BCE as a refuge for himself in the event of a revolt.  Identified in 1842 and extensively excavated between 1963 & 1965, the site has remained largely untouched by humans or nature during the last 2 millenia, due to the remoteness from human habitation and its enviroment. 

Today, ascend via the snake path, or if you prefer, a cable car and explore the Roman ramp that still stands on the Western side as well as an ancient Synagogue, wall paintings of Herod's two main palaces and Roman-style bathhouses that he built. 

An audio-visual light show is presented between March - October, every Tuesday and Thursday at 9pm on the western side of the mountain.
