Over half a million visitors a year, the Bahá’í Gardens in Haifa are among the most popular sites in the Middle East. Their unique design, combining geometrical shapes and exquisite detailing with loving conservation of natural and historic landscape features, leaves an indelible impression on visitors. Many people return again and again to experience the changing seasons and relive the serene tranquility and uplifting spirit of these special places.

The Roman Theater - the theater structure, an impressive and powerful building, stands at the southern edge of the national park. People from the highest and lowest walks of life came here to enjoy dramas and comedies. The theater was built by Emperor Vespasian, using Roman arch-based technology. At a later stage, King Herod added a few more blocks of seats and enlarged it. Today it is possible to see some of the original seats as well as marble decorations from the 2nd century CE. The Reef Palace - when leaving the theater in the direction of the promenade, you pass through a large courtyard, in the western part of which there are pillars facing the sea. This was the inner courtyard of the guest wing of Herod's magnificent palace. The palace consisted of two stories for guests and residents. Another part of the palace was built at the western end of the courtyard, on the marine reef - a sort of peninsula protruding out to sea. Standing at the edge of the courtyard, looking west, one can see some of the remains of the palace, parts of which are submerged in the sea, and one can imagine the glory and elegance of the place. 

The “Caesarea Experience” display - a cinematic “time travel” through the history of Caesarea, through which visitors are introduced to various periods in the annals of the city and the cultures that ruled it. Archaeological Park - When leaving the theater in the direction of the sea, the visitor passes through a very impressive display of archaeological items that were found all over the park and are now displayed to the public with explanations. The majority are architectural elements, among them pillars and capitals, gravestones, sculptures, etc. The delicate carvings, the careful chiseling and the excellent artisanship are evidence of the city's luxury.
