Explore the ancient ruins of Herod's Western Palace, often touted as one of the most important buildings in Jerusalem. The King of Judea, Herod the Great, originally built it in the first century BCE. It once stood as an imposing fortress 300 m (1,000 ft) above sea level, but now all that remains are various citadels cited as the "Tower of David." The climb provides a moderate challenge but provides views overlooking the surrounding desert and Dead Sea. Some sources state that this is where Jesus Christ was trialed and sentenced.
