This is a newer archaeological site and may not be well known yet. But it was definitely worth the visit!
Our private tour group of 4 visitors spent two hours here, learning about the ancient town of Magdala where Mary Magdalena, disciple of Jesus, came from.
The site of this town is fascinating, with an ancient synagogue, houses etc. The Magdala Stone that was discovered here is currently on display in Washington, D.C. at the new Museum of the Bible.
Beyond the archeological interests there is a Catholic chapel and faith center that is beautiful and peaceful, right on the Sea of Galilee. We loved that it highlights the women in the Bible through the art works in this center.
Our tour guide was excellent, a young man from South America, who was very intelligent and knowledgeable.
Do not miss going to Magdala!!
