Herodion’s one-to-fifty scale model allows you to understand the in-depth engineering of this one-of-a-kind structure of the ancient world. Concentric walls rest on a round north tower. This design reduces the load on the walls and strengthens them using semicircular of the towers on each wall segment. The staircase portal rose along the hill to the north tower. The staircase was climbed in front of the odeon and an elegant tower with an unusual stone roof, which for many years was considered the burial of Herod the Great.
