Masada is a symbol of of resistance for Jews, after a rebellion against Rome a group of religious Jews took control of this fort, built by Herodes, the Great. They resisted up there for some time and in 73 the Romans built a ramp and invaded the fort. It is told everybody committed suicide before Romans entered in the fort, anyway no one skeleton was found up there.
Here we can see the Dead Sea ahead, the lower place on earth.
Masada é um símbolo da resistência judaica. Depois da rebelião dos judeus contra os romanos um grupo de judeus muito religiosos invadiu este forte, erguido por Herodes, o Grande, no topo de uma alta montanha. Os romanos cercaram o forte no ano 73, fizeram uma rampa e depois de muitos meses entraram. Diz a história que todos lá dentro se suicidaram antes da chegada dos soldados romanos, mas os arqueólogos nunca encontraram esqueletos lá em cima.

Hello Jorge, Very wide panorama seen from Masada. We can see here the Dead See. Impressive view from the cable car station. Amazing place, how could they build all this, I wonder.
Have a nice week

Hello Jorge,
A beautiful panorama photo of this barren landscape and the famous Dead Sea in the background. The division between the blue parts and the land is very nice.

Hello Jorge,
I remember this view from Masada. Unfortunately, after my disk crash, I have only the photos I shared on TE left.
