The cable car ride up to the fort of Masada – video


I know many of you like videos of cable car rides! So here is the short ride up to the fort of Masada. This was originally a mountain palace built by Herod then it went in to a decline until it was taken over by rebels during the Second Jewish Revolt crushed brutally by the Romans. Rather than surrender, the rebels on the hilltop committed mass suicide. Later a Byzantine church was built on the site.
