  • There is a Synagogue here, the location is beautiful and the iconic statue of Peter holding the keys to heaven is here
  • Too bad it's covered over by a church. Hampers taking in this little village's character.
  • Very nice place, warm people!
  • Nice preservation at the Capernaum location. A church has been built over it to memorialize the probable house of Peter's mother in law. I liked the quotes in Latin and wood work around the walls of the church. Nice beach front.
  • St. Peter's house lays on the ground as archaeological findings and has octagonal shape church. Nice architecture.
