The spectacular archeological remains of Avdat show what is left of what was one of the most important cities of the spice route, created by the Nabataeans on their way from Petra to Gaza. A UNESCO heritage site and also one of the scenes from the movie Jesus Christ Superstar. So for one reason or another you will love it.
This building held 5,000 spectators. An inscription ahs been found which attests to the presence of Pontius Pilate in the time of Christ and a mosaic with comedy and tragedy masks. The theatre is located in the southern part of the city. It was commissioned by King Herod and the first Roman entertainment facilities were built here. The flat semicircular orchestra, first paved in painted plaster, was later paved with marble. The theater is well kept and has been renovated. Anyway, the point is that is a joy to walk through it on the Mediterranean shore, almost comparable to the feeling obtained from the one in Tarragona.
This 2nd century Roman aqueduct replaced the primitive one. Standing at 9 km long, these two aqueducts supplied the city with water from distant sources in the north. "These springs, these aqueducts, these circuses, built to his fat officials and prostitutes, not for the people."
