Apollonia National Park is located north of Herzliya Pituah on the coastal plains and contains the ruinsĀ of a Crusader city from nearly 800 years ago.

Apollonia was excavated in recent years, revealingĀ an impressive Crusader fortress that is the centerpiece of the park. It was built between 1241 and 1265 and serves as a testimony to the strength of the city in its day.
