Travel Log # 7 Israel Part 5 Caesarea Aqueducts

In our travels through Israel we saw so much history and ruins that archaeologists must have been at the height of their glory as they discovered these ruins from thousands of years ago.

These pictures of aqueducts show their ingenuity and intelligence! Caesarea had no rivers or springs so drinking water was brought by aqueducts. The water here came from Shuni Springs. There were three canals bringing water.
