A significant place in the Israel and Jewish history is occupied by the person of Herod the Great, the builder.
Roman-appointed king of Judea built many fortresses, aqueducts, theatres, and other public buildings and generally raised the prosperity of his land.
Herodion ( King Herod's Palace-Fortress ), the only city that bears his name, is impressive in its elaborate layout and scale.

Herodium is not just King Herod's palace, which was a masterpiece of architecture and a miracle of engineering, not only the place where the dramatic events described by Josephus Flavius unfolded during the Jewish–Roman War, but also a unique symbol of the struggle for freedom and independence.
