Among the sites in the park are a Roman amphitheater and the biblical Tel Maresha with its breathtaking view all the way to the Mediterranean. At the park visiters can find numerous caves, which started out as quarries some 2,300 years ago.
Also there are visits to the Columbarium (Dovecote) Cave, the Olive Press Cave, and the Sidonian and Musicians Tomb, with their colorful Greek-style frescoes. The dramatic Bell Caves, which also host concerts and other events, still bear the marks of the diggers, who penetrated the surface through small holes.
