  • Unlike other places, such as Nazareth, which is more than doubtful, the archaeological remains of Capernaum are interesting. Both the synagogue and the old fishing village built with basalt stone, as what is venerated as San Pedro House. This last area is a humble, more or less square House, with material evidence had been a "domus ecclesia" towards the end of the 1st century, i.e. a House especially used as a church, not so properly. The timelines are very interesting because they speak of a very early veneration. After the "boom" that caused the mother of the Emperor Constantine, are still finding remains materials of veneration in the century IV and the construction of a church octagonal in the century V confirms the character special of the place. The ruins can verse directly or from within the Church modern that there is over, through the floor of methacrylate. I recommend the first option.

  • Interesting to see the Church and the House of Peter. Together with the city of Capernaum. As a whole is worth.
