An extremely old and well together ruined town. It is after all Capernaum and has been there forever. Lovely statue of St Peter and the views of the Sea are amazing. Don’t forget your cover up clothing as knees and shoulders have to be covered.

This was a very spiritual site for us as it was a place where Jesus taught and was the center of his ministry. We were blessed to have an extremely knowledgeable guide and 5 pastors traveling with us who brought the biblical history to life.
