THIS IS WHERE IT ALL STARTED

 

Tabgha & Capernaum

This region along the northern part of the lake is where Jesus acted and gathered his first disciples. 

A 2km path leads you from one holy site to the other. Including the ruins of Capernaum village, churches and the Mount of Beatitudes.

 

Make sure to find the hidden waterfall and cool off in the lake.
