  • Along with the Tabgha (multiplication of fish), it's worth it. Place where Jesus did a lot of things. A lot of your Ministry was in Capernaum.

  • I found this a very helpful visit in terms of appreciating what housing and city structure were like during Jesus' ministry. Entire city blocks have been excavated. 
  • Impressive care by the congregation are Franciscan rocks of the House where Jesus sano to St. Peter's mother-in-law. And have built the Church facing the sea of Galilee in the center of the Church on these stones are in front of the altar are stones and above it a glass surrounded of beautiful altarpieces. In the center of the square an image of San Pedro identical to the Vatican. A beautiful tour!
