    We enjoyed our visit! This Christian site was built when the Pope visited in the early 2000s. As Jews, it was interesting to learn from the private guide (supplied to us for free, in English) the coop...  more »

    It is a place out of all that is seen in the Holy land. By its modernity out of the ordinary that combines the beauty of the building with the landscape (the view of the Lake of Galilee is unmatched) there can go as a tourist and also to spend a few days as a Christian praying, meditating, etc. You do so it will never forget.

    An amazing place. This is a Christian website dedicated to reconciliation with the Jews. He's probably a lot of contributions and the Pope visited his nose. The site, invested a lot. In a huge library, priests, modern beautiful church, which displays several Bible ("old testament"), a conference hall decorated like a spaceship from the outside world n nachtta overlooks the sacred Lake-Lake. There are free tutorials instead of volunteers, in English (a Hebrew-to find out)

    This is a very beautiful spot with view on the sea of Galilee and the surroundings, the building itself is also very interesting, both outside and interior (many artwork was donated to this place by famous artist). On opening times there is excellent guided tours inside the main building, the tours served by Students that studying serving there, and are delivered in few languages. The place agenda is also very interesting as they forwarding the message of connecting Christianity, Islam and Judaism.

    Domus Galilaeae (House of Galilee) is a located above Capernaum and offers an amazing view of Sea of Galilee. It's a Christian place for holding Seminars and Conventions. It also some kind of a school for young Christians who study to become priests. It's a MUST place for Christians, but also highly recommended for Jews and Muslims alike. As a Jewish, I've learned A LOT from this place. We had a short guided tour which was very interesting. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! I also like the architecture of the building A LOT!
