Ruins of avdat

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.

The earliest stage of caravans between Petra and Gaza, Oboda (Avedat), which is named after the Nabatean king Obodas I, is also the most impressive of the Negev city. In the vast acropolis overlooking the remains of the lower city and the ancient Nabatean Roman camp, stands a citadel, extended in Roman and Byzantine times, and after Bedouin raids. Had temples dedicated to Zeus (Dushara), Aphrodite (The Uzza) and Obodas I. Today, in ruins, churches north and south, both monoabsidiales, were built after the earthquake of 502 on the site of the ancient Nabataean temple. Below the bathrooms have been discovered, a potter's oven, wine facilities and stables dating from Rabel II. You will find them near Mizpe Ramon, Be'er-Sheva way from the first population. It is one of my favorite places in Israel, to get lost in the ruins and history.

La etapa de caravanas más antigua entre Petra y Gaza, Oboda (Avedat), que debe su nombre al rey nabateo Obodas I, es también la más impresionante ciudad del Negueb. En la amplia acrópolis que domina los restos de la ciudad baja nabatea y del antiguo campamento romano, se alza una ciudadela, ampliada en época romana y bizantina, y después de las incursiones beduinas. Presentaba los templos dedicados a Zeus (Dushara), Afrodita (El Uzza) y Obodas I. Hoy , en ruinas, las iglesias norte y sur, ambas monoabsidiales, se erigieron tras el terremoto del año 502 en el emplazamiento del antiguo templo nabateo. Más abajo se han descubierto los baños, un horno de alfarero, instalaciones vitícolas y establos que datan de Rabel II.
Las encontrareis cerca de Mizpe Ramón, camino a Be´er-Sheva desde la primera población.
Es uno de mis rincones preferidos de Israel, para perderse en las ruinas y en la Historia.
