To experience the place where Jesus spent most of his life is an experience I won't ever forget. The homeless statue of Jesus on the bench is an image which resonates every time I pass an unfortunate person on the street, could that be Jesus...More

Kfar Nahum AKA Capernaum was one of the important milestones in the New Testament and it’s interesting to visit here.

The historic town of Capernaum has historic buildings and a great narrative. The Biblical narrative mentions Capernaum extensively and it is all here. Well worth visiting

An extremely old and well together ruined town. It is after all Capernaum and has been there forever. Lovely statue of St Peter and the views of the Sea are amazing. Don’t forget your cover up clothing as knees and shoulders have to be covered.
