Archaeology and History
National park and remains of a Second Temple-era fishing village that was the focus of Jesus Galilee ministry, the latter under the aegis of the Franciscan Church.
The national park includes a 3.5 km long promenade connecting Capernaum and Tabgha.
A dock, constructed to rise and fall with the water level has been built east of the Capernaum antiquities.
Dock facilities include an information booth, souvenir shop, toilets and a snack bar. The park fosters and protects a variety of flora and fauna.
