  • This tiny archaeological site includes thermal springs at 60° C and a splendid mosaic depicting a zodiacal circle that has nothing to envy to that of Beit Alpha. The mosaic floor of the old synagogue also includes various geometric designs, two beautiful lions and some religious symbols (such as the Menorah). The entire synagogue is closed by a heated structure for optimal preservation of mosaics; a wooden platform allows shooting around the floor. Within the site there is a system of canals to bring water from the hot spring spa (spa is across the street) and the original building of the Turkish baths which is now a museum. Also nice that legend attributes to King Solomon the birth of hot springs: to alleviate the health problems of the local population, King Solomon forced some demons working for him, warming the spring water and will not cease their business, never made them deaf simultaneously so that they could not receive the news of his death. The water is really hot (touched by hand!) but it doesn't smell of sulfur as it is not of volcanic origin. The site is easy to reach by car (located on 90, 2.5 Km South of Tiberias) and there is ample parking. Right in front of there is one of the few public beaches of the Lake, so you can overlook the sea of Galilee during the stop. Apart from the ticket office, on the website there are only bathrooms and no coffee.
