Bet Guvrin-Maresha National Park, Central District

(5/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Take a tour of the World Heritage Site of Bet Guvrin-Maresha National Park, a vast archaeological complex that contains the remains of two ancient cities. One of the cities, Maresha, dates back to the eighth-century BCE kingdom of Judah, while Beit Guvrin, then known as Eleutheropolis, was inhabited in the Roman and Byzantine periods. Discover thousands of bell-shaped subterranean caves that dot the hills of the historic site, forming a labyrinthine network of quarries, baths, hideaways, storage facilities, and even burial grounds. Apart from the caverns, you can also visit the remains of a Roman amphitheater, and a church that was rebuilt by 12th-century crusaders. Plan your visit to Bet Guvrin-Maresha National Park and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Givat Yeshayahu tourist route planner.
