Commanding a dramatic view of the Galilee, Sussita sits atop a thousand-foot-high hill. A zigzag road leads to the site from the west. The oblong-shaped site is 2,000 feet long and 700 feet wide. During the New Testament era, Sussita was a member of the Decapolis, a group of ten cities governed according to the principles of a Greek city-state (polis).
