HISTORICAL SITES IN ISRAEL
MASADA ... ISRAEL'S most popular paid tourist attractions!
On the eastern edge of theÂ Judaean Desert, overlooking The Dead Sea, MASADA is a fascinating UNESCO World Heritage Site that is a MUST SEE!!! This ancient fortification in the Southern District of Israel in top of an isolated rock plateau is the site of The Siege of Masada by troops of the Roman Empire towards the end of the First Jewish-Roman War and ended in the mass suicide of the 960 Jewish Rebels holed up there. An UNFORGETTABLE PLACE!
