The gorgeous Greek Orthodox Church at Capernaum

The area of the village of Capernaum is located at the north corner of the Sea of Galilee, on the side of the ancient road from Tiberias to the east of the sea of Galilee.

Capernaum was the center of Jesus activities in the Galilee and his town during that time. Jesus taught in the local synagogue. It was also the home of the apostles Peter, James, Andrew and John, and the tax collector Matthew.
