One of many churches
Aug 2021
We tried to visit also St. Paul's church in the complex but it was closed due to lack of tourists owing to the corona virous restrictions for tourists in israel. Tabgha church has a small parking and a gift shop and a small pond in the entrance. Inside there was a nun and a priest chiming the bell. What I found interesting was the wooden ceiling and the byzantine era inscriptions on the floor, right of the altar. 10-15 min should be enough fo your visit.

Holy, beautiful and quiet

The Church of the Bread and the Fish is located in Ein Sheva, northwest of the Sea of Galilee. The church commemorates the miracle of the bread and fish, which according to the New Testament was performed by Jesus in the place. Religious place, one of the most important in the Christian religion

Beautiful Mosaics, Memorable Experience
Dec 2019
Many early Christian experiences have occurred in the Tabgha area, yet this lovely church honors the extraordinary miracle of Jesus feeding the multitude with 5 loaves and 2 fish, as written in Luke 9:16, as well as other books of the Gospel in The Bible. Known for the beautiful mosaics in recognition of this miracle and other scenes, the lovely, peaceful church has a welcoming inner courtyard with an olive tree as its focal point. We enjoyed a hot cappuccino and snack before entering the church in the early morning, prior to the arrival of all of the tours.

This is worth a visit when in the area. There are some nice mosaic here. The only down side was it was pretty crowded.

Horrible
Nov 2019
Very unfriendly staff. We walked in the park with our kid (then six years old) and just wanted to sit in the shadows when someone of the staff came and shouted that we had to leave the premises immediately and why we walked in. When we answered that the entrance was open we were told that this could not be true. We left immediately and we will sure never come back.

Tabgha
Jul 2019
We visited two sites of Tabgha on both our recent trip to the area and on our previous trip, 5 or 6 years earlier.
While the area near the monastery (and the Seven Well area) is interesting, I found that the Church of Peter's Primacy was much more inspiring and thought-provoking. Located at (or near) the traditionally accepted site on the shore of the Sea of Galilee of Christ's raising St. Peter to be the head of the Church, the Church here has the actual rock surface on the floor of the church in front of the altar. You cannot visit Tabgha without thinking intensely about Christ's life on earth and his founding of Christianity and the Catholic Church.

On the Sea of Galilee
Jan 2020
Tabgha is located on the north-western shore of the Sea of Galilee, at the foot of the Mount of Beatitudes and less than 2 mi (3 km) from Capernaum. This area has been frequented by fishermen since Jesus’ time, thanks to several warm springs that enter the lake here, producing warmer waters. Capernaum was also the center of Jesus’ ministry. No surprise then that Tabgha is on the pilgrimage route. There are two must-visit churches in Tabgha: The Church of the Multiplication of the Fish & Loaves, and the Church of the Primacy of Peter. Both commemorate beautiful miraculous events of Jesus’ ministry and resurrection.
