Archaeology and History
At Kursi, on the eastern side of the Sea of Galilee are the remains of a fifth-century Byzantine monastery and church marking the site of the New Testament story of Jesus expelling demons from a possessed man into a herd of swine, which ran off a hill into the Sea of Galilee and drowned. The church floor depicts animals, birds and fruit.
An ancient olive press is on display and a trail leads up the famous hill.
