From Shuni to Caesarea — The Roman Aqueducts

From Shuni to Caesarea — The Roman Aqueducts

Between Haifa and Tel Aviv lies the ancient city of Caesarea, built by King Herod in 10 BCE. Even in medieval times, the city had an abundant supply of water that came from three main aqueducts in addition to wells and cisterns. One of its main aqueducts originated in the Shuni springs of Northern Israel — the region which today boasts the beautiful Jabotinsky Shuni Park. A map of the intricate Roman aqueduct system that brought water from the North and South to Caesarea can be seen here.
