Ralli Museum Review

Once you've entered Caesarea's villa area, you can't miss the two Spanish colonial-style buildings of the Ralli Museum, with their red tiled roofs and expansive terraces. One of these dazzling white buildings houses an exhibit on the ancient city's history. The second building, in a Moorish style, examines the golden age of Spanish Jewry in the Middle Ages. It's a pleasure to wander along the walls of the courtyard and gaze at the sculptures of various dignitaries such as Maimonides and Spinoza. Inside are paintings with biblical themes by European artists of the 16th to 18th centuries. Rotating exhibitions feature contemporary Latin American art.
