What's left from Capernaum provides us with glimpses of how the jews used to live. Homes are close to the synagogue and its carvings are a reflection on their view and habit at the time.

Capernaum is a town well-known in the Bible for being a place where Jesus performed many miracles. The ruins now show St. Peter's house, a Jewish synagogue, and a number of other houses. It is owned by the Franciscans now, and they offer tours.

You get to Capernaum National Park just as you make the right turn to get to Capernaum Town of Jesus (Catholic pilgrimage site/St Peter’s Church in Capernaum). There is plenty of parking spaces. It opens up into a cove/bay that’s pretty much quiet and empty....More
