Church of the Multiplication, Capernaum
(4.3/5 based on 130 reviews on the web)
On the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee stands Church of the Multiplication, where some believe Jesus fed 5,000 with just a few loaves of bread and two fish. Constructed in the style of Byzantine architecture and opened in 1982, this modern church occupies the site of two previous 4th- and 5th-century churches. Walk through the central nave, paying special attention to the preserved 5th-century floor mosaics--some of the earliest examples of of Christian art in the Holy Land. In front of the altar, the mosaics seem to depict the Gospel's fish and loaves miracle.
