So guess where I have been the last two weeks, or so? Israel, as shown by the flag.
The ancient Caesarea Maritima city and harbor was built by Herod the Great about 25–13 BC. The city had been populated through the late Roman and Byzantine era. Its ruins lie on the Mediterranean coast of Israel, about halfway between the cities of Tel Aviv and Haifa. Old Herod fell out of favour with the caeser and then built the place and named it Caeserea in honour of Augustus Caeser. In 638 AD the city fell to Muslim reign, which explains the minaret. Around 1101 AD the city fell to the crusaders, who added some more construction to the site.
