Miniature city

The miniature city is a 1:150 scale replica of Jerusalem at the end of the Second Temple period, where an estimated 80,000 people lived. The city measured 1500 meters long and 800 meters wide.


The replica, which measures 115 square meters is made up of 10.400 houses, 70 meters of walls, 300 palaces and 50 towers, distributed throughout the city. The miniature replica was built by Ecuadorian artist Fernando Insua based on the design of Israeli historian and geographer Michael Avi-Yonah, who referred to the writings of Flavius Josephus and other historical sources.
