Caesarea. Randall Niles visits the massive archaeological site on the Mediterranean Sea in Israel.

Caesarea Maritima (Caesarea of the Sea) is a huge archaeological site along the Mediterranean Coast in Israel. Built by Herod the Great in the first century BC in honor of Augustus Caesar, Caesarea includes a 40-acre harbor that could shelter 300 ships. In addition to the largest port in the eastern Mediterranean, the ruins of Caesarea still reveal a huge palace, hippodrome, public baths, buildings, and colonnaded streets. Caesarea also contains a massive amphitheatre with seating capacity of 3,500. According to Acts 12 and the ancient historian Josephus, this is where Herod Agrippa was killed.

According to Acts 10, Caesarea Maritima is where Peter baptized the Roman Centurion Cornelius, the first Gentile convert. According to Acts 23 through 26, Caesarea is also the place where Paul was imprisoned for two years before he was sent to Rome for trial.
