Church of the Multiplication, Capernaum

#4 of 7 in Things to do in Capernaum
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.

Small rocks that sat in Christ has bread and fish mosaics on the floor of the front and underneath the altar. Other tiles, such as birds.
