After five years of excavation, conservation and development, the vaults built by King Herod in the harbor under the temple that was dedicated to Augustus, have been reconstructed to become the new impressive Visitors' Center.

An exhibition, incorporating historical content, a media presentation and rare archaeological artifacts found during the excavation of the land and the seabed, has been established within the four vaults that date back 2,000 years.

The impressive media presentation, shown on the wall of one of the original vaults, demonstrates Herod's complex and headstrong character, a man who loved to build and established the city and the port.
