King Herod worked vary hard to find favour with the Romans – as a result, Herod was about to take advantage and build many structures throughout what is now known as Israel. This included a Palace and Amphitheatre along the lines of the Roman Architecture. In Caesarea, there is a Maritima Park that is a National Park which incorporates all the old structures remains.

The Amphitheatre has had some extensive renovations undertaken which now shows what it used to look like.

King Herod also built a Palace right on the coast and the remains of this is in the photograph below.
