Tonight I had thought about taking another Virtual Hike on the Israel National Trail, but decided I needed to do a bit more research on the area I wanted to hike.
Instead, I will post some pictures of aqueducts as I passed through Aqueduct Beach near Ceasarea Maritima while following the trail on Google Maps. There are two aqueducts here that were built side by side. The first aqueduct was built by Herod and it was later widened by Hadrian. The second aqueduct was built during the Byzantine period.
I took this picture just last month while traveling Up to Jerusalem.
This picture was taken during my first trip to Israel and was used in my post Sea to Sea.
On the way to the airport at the end of my trip to Turkey we passed through the arches that hold up the Valens Aqueduct in Istanbul. This aqueduct was built in the 4th century so is about 1,600 years old.
Have you seen any of these aqueducts?
