Galilee and Nazareth - walking in the footsteps of Jesus
Follow Jesus’ journey and explore the religious and historical sites along the way as you tour from the Sea of the Galilee to Nazareth.
The Sea of Galilee, known to Israelis as the Kinneret, is fed by the Jordan River, rainfall and springs on the northern side. More properly designated a lake, the Kinneret is only 13 miles by 7 miles, but is one of the most well-known bodies of water in the world.
Tabgha is the traditional site of the Miracle of the Multiplication of the Loaves and the Fishes.
Located on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee, Capernaum was a fishing village in the days of the Jesus. We can still visit a very well-preserved synagogue. Today it is a site of pilgrimage for Christians as it was one of the places where Jesus and Peter, the Apostles, lived and preached.
Nazareth, the childhood home of Jesus, is closely associated with Christianity and attracted many pilgrims throughout the last two thousand years. The standout site in Nazareth is the Basilica of the Annunciation, the largest Christian church building in the Middle East. This church was dedicated in 1964 on the Papal visit of Pope Paul VI.
