Atlas Obscura Hadrianic Aqueduct of Caesarea

Caesarea was one of the most important cities of the ancient Roman world and the capital of the province of Judaea. The ruins of Caesarea, sometimes referred to as Caesarea Maritima to distinguish it from Caesarea Philippi, lie on the Mediterranean coast of present-day Israel.

The city was founded between 22 and 10 BCE by Herod the Great. When construction began, Caesarea had no reliable source of fresh water, so King Herod commissioned a raised aqueduct to deliver water from springs about ten miles to the northeast.
