Like so many other places in Israel, Ashkelon is built upon the ruins of past civilizations, it dates back approximately 5000 years and is considered to be one of the world's most ancient cities.
Ashkelon was one of five Philistine city-states (along with Gath, Gaza, Ekron and Ashdod).
It is the site of the famous scene between Samson and Delilah, when Delilah cuts Samson's hair in order to deprive him of his strength (Judges 14).
Ashkelon has become a tourist center, and offers new attractions alongside interesting archaeological sites. The city's major attraction is the National Park south-west of the city, contains ancient remains, starting with the impressive city gate from the Canaanite Period (about 4,000 years ago), a public building and many sculptures from the Roman Era (about 2,000 years ago), and up to the ruins of fortifications from the Crusader Period (about 1,000 years ago). The National Park extends about the Tel, and has spacious lawns and a public beach.
The city's remaining public beaches stretch out to the north of the National Park. The seashore also has a Marina. Nearby there is a beautiful promenade, and the Ashkelona Water Park, offering families an attractive water experience.
Ancient sites are dispersed throughout the city, including an Archaeological Park with two magnificent coffins from the Roman Period (on Ha-Gefen Street in the Afridar neighborhood), the remains of two Byzantine churches (on Tsvi Segel Street in the Barne'a neighborhood), two splendid Roman graves and a Sheik's grave from the Mamluk Period (next to the Marina).
Buildings from the Arab city of Majdal have been preserved in the Migdal neighborhood, including the city's big mosque and the Khan. Today, the Ashkelon Museum is located in the mosque, which houses an exhibition of the history of modern Ashkelon alongside archaeological findings, while the Khan houses artists' studios.
