The necropolis of Bet She’arim | Israel

Beit She'arim is a Roman-era Jewish village (now ruin) that thrived from the 1st-century BCE until its demise in the early 20th century.

Hewed into the limestone slopes of hills bordering the Vale of Jezre’el, a series of man-made catacombs was developed from the 2nd century AD as the necropolis of Bet She’arim.

Necropolis of Bet She’arim: A Landmark of Jewish Renewal is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
