The Must-See Fortress of Masada

A real archaeological and visual highlight on our trip to the Holy Land will no doubt be the Herodian fortress along the Dead Sea known as Masada. Wayne Stiles has an excellent article with some outstanding photos of the site and some devotional reflections: Masada: A Place of Sanctuary, Suicide, and Inspiration. This is good background for our visit as well as for general information about a breathtaking and key historical site.
