Caesarea: Port City With a History of Beauty and Faith

One of Israel’s most beautiful and historic port cities, Caesarea was named after Caesar Augustus and was home to a magnificent theater, bustling harbor, and ancient sporting events.

It was in this picturesque setting that the Roman centurion Cornelius was visited by an Angel who directed him to send for Peter the Apostle.  So it was in Caesarea that salvation first came to the gentiles.  Today nearly 5,000 people live, work, and take in the sights of this stunning seaside destination.

Whether you are visiting Israel for historic, religious, or scenic reasons, Caesarea would make a beautiful stop on your itinerary!
