Masada , The Most Visited Site in Israel

MassadaDun and Bradstreet published a survey results which rates the top sites visited in Israel. Masada ranked as the most visited site for 2010 with 763,000 visitors. Masada, a national park is a point of interest to the majority of tourists visiting Israel and to the domestic population as well. On top of the mountain, King Herod built one of his palaces which many years later served as a fortress for the Jewish zealots running from the Romans. The combination of a dramatic story, along with the archeological remains of the palace and the peaceful views from the ancient palace make this site very attractive to visitors. Lately a complicated project has been completed to develop a path for improving the accessibility to the top of the mountain. This development accommodates the needs of handicaps. Last month the first race to the top was held, using the steep “Snake Path”. It is interesting to note that Caesarea Philippi ranked as the third place thanks to the many Christian visitors and to the new “Hanging Path” opened lately to the public
