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.
