Masada are the ruins of a city built by King Herod at the top of a mountain plateau in the desert of Judea. It was built with the intention to survive for a siege of 50 years never happened. Later it was occupied by Jews and the Jewish-Roman War in AD 66 when the city was to be conquered by the Romans, the inhabitants of the spoils preferred to perform a mass suicide to become slaves of the Romans.
