Type: Religious Sites; Bodies of Water
The Sea of Galilee, known to Israelis as Lake Kinneret, is only 13 miles by 7 miles, but is one of the most well-known bodies of water in the world. It was on these beautiful shores that Jesus delivered sermons and performed miracles.
Many famous sites are located around the lake, including Capernaum, home to at least five of the twelve disciples. The Church of the Beatitudes is said to be where the Sermon of the Mount was preached and Tabgha, believed to be the site where Jesus fed 5,000 followers from five loaves of bread and two fish, is marked by The Church of Multiplication. The nearby lakeside town of Migdal is the hometown of Mary Magdalene.

One of the most spectacular views and breathtaking panoramas in Israel can be found here in the lower Galilee region. Like so many other places in Israel, however, the view gives no hint of the rich Jewish history lying beneath the surface.
Mount Arbel (or Har Arbel) is a mountain in The Lower Galilee near Tiberias in Israel, that has split into two after an earthquake. The other half of is Mt. Nitai. On the mountain there are four settlements: Kfar Zeitim, Arbel, Kfar Hittim, and Mitspeh. The peak, at 282 meters above sea level (481 meters above the surrounding area), dominates the entire surroundings (much of the area is below sea level) and from the lookout atop the mountain, one can see almost all of the Galilee into the Golan Heights including Safed, Tiberias and most of the Sea of Galilee.
Type: Ancient Ruins
Kursi is the Arabic name of the valley whose western side touches the lake shore, and where remains of a Jewish fishing village from the time of the Mishnah and the Talmud was found, and on whose eastern side, at the foot of the Golan Heights, a monastery was discovered. The monastery was found by accident during road construction after the Six-Day War.
The monastery measuring 123 x 145 m, is the largest in Israel. Together with its church, it was built in the fifth century CE and was apparently damaged during the Persian invasion of 614 CE. The church was restored, but abandoned in the eighth century, never to be rebuilt. The mosaic floor unearthed here depicts animal life––roosters, geese, doves, cormorants and fish, some of which were purposely defaced in antiquity. Plant designs include citrons, figs, pomegranates and clusters of grapes. An inscription in Greek adorns the floor of the baptistery.

On the Sea of Galilee, near the base of towering Mount Arbel, lie the ruins of the ancient city of Magdala. Today the remains of the city can be found by travelling north about six kilometers on the coastal road from Tiberias.
Magdala was placed on the map forever because of its most famous first-century resident. We know her from the dozen references in the New Testament as Mary Magdalene.
Like so many other ancient cities, Magdala was rediscovered in the past century. In 1971-74, the city was excavated by Corbo and Loffreda. In their excavations they discovered a mini-synagogue, a water reservoir and some mosaics. One of the mosaics, now on display at Capernaum, depicts an ancient boat with both sails and oars, not unlike the famous boat actually discovered in the general area in 1986.
