  • Where theoretically by the acoustics and the characteristics of the mount, Jesus made the famous sermon on the mount. You have a lovely view of the sea of Galilee. There was built a church that is maintained by Franciscan nuns who live in the House behind. Beautiful go there and read Matthew describing Jesus speaking in the bunch.

  • Jesus preached the sermon on the mount in place. An unforgettable and exciting attraction. Enjoy to take a picture with a view of the sea of Galilee.

  • Who's on the Lake of Galilee, should take a small detour to the mountain of the "Salian"pricing... Beautiful views of the Lake...

Where to stay in Capernaum

Capernaum itself offers no accommodations, with the ruins of the village thankfully left undisturbed by modern developments. Visitors usually stay in the large town of Tiberias, itself a fascinating place with Biblical history. Look along the shoreline of Tiberias for some of the more upscale resorts and hotels, with many offering their own tours of the Sea of Galilee and Capernaum. For more budget-friendly options, go farther inland and look along the side streets that run off Highway 77.
