SUSSITA: Like many other sites across the Galilee and Golan Heights dating to the Greek period, Sussita follows the naming structure based on assigning animal names to cities and towns. Sussita – or Hippos – as it was known to the Greeks due to its appearance reminding those of a ‘horse’ over the Sea of Galilee, was one of the 10 capital cities surrounding the Jordan river. The site saw continuous Greek and Roman settlement and eventually fell under Christian control with the conversion of the Roman empire. The site combines beautiful views and a vast array of archeological remains.
