Al-Bass Archeological Site
This sprawling site lies 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) east of the Al-Mina site. Just past the entrance is a vast funerary complex, with hundreds of ornate stone and marble sarcophagi.
The Al-Bass site is also home to a Byzantine road, a second-century triumphal arch, a Roman road with an aqueduct, and the remains of second-century Roman hippodrome. One of the largest hippodromes in the world, it seated 20,000 spectators for chariot races.
To reach the Al-Bass site, take the main road running south from the Al-Bass roundabout. The entrance appears on the right after a 10 to 15 minute walk, just after the Palestinian camp.
