Parkland is beautiful. Excavations are shocking. Tombs and sarcoughogus' are intricate and plentiful. Amazing place to spend a hour or two.

A huge ancient cemetery with endless numbers of sarcophaguses. So many things you can learn from the writing and the decorations on almost each one of them. One of a lifetime experience!

Very interesting place about the early Jewish settlement in Israel. In this place you can see burial caves and Sarcophagus and get explanation of the area.

First class archeological site quite well mantained. Plenty of space to visit and to walk. Caves are stunning and few of them are accessible. Kids will enjoy acting like Indiana Jones...The site is also suitable for picnic and lunches.
