Tour - Churches

Region: North, By Appointment: Yes
Source: Ministry of Tourism
Region: North

A tour of the churches scattered around the Sea of Galilee and tell the story of Jesus' miracles more than 2,000 years ago.

The tour reveals the events that took place in the region more than two thousand years ago.

These churches, which are treated with monastic devotion, are a way of getting to know the world of Christianity and its connection to Judaism.

The tour begins at a viewpoint over the Sea of Galilee from the Mount of Beatitudes, where you hear about the beginning of Christianity and its connection to Judaism, from where you continue into the octagonal church and hear an explanation of the background to its establishment and the importance of the sermon on the Mount of Beatitudes to Christianity and the connection to the architecture of the church.

From there continue to the Kfar Nahum National Park, the place once known as the "City of Jesus" and are exposed to the antiquities associated with the House of St. Peter, Jesus' first disciple, and across from it, we will see an ancient synagogue that was used by the people of the village.

In the village of Kfar Nahum, we will hear about the recruitment of the Jewish students of Jesus who made a living from fishing and the many miracles that were said to exist in the lake and its surroundings.

From there, we continue to the Church of the Twelve Apostles, a Greek Orthodox Church, wherein we will hear about the separations and divisions of Christianity, and theological differences between the sects.

From there we arrive at the Church of Bread and Fish, a Catholic church that is a replica of a Byzantine church, and we hear about the famous bread and fish miracle, in whose honor the church was established and the unique mosaic, part of which was preserved from the Byzantine period.

The tour lasts between 3-6 hours.
