Tabgha, Tiberias

#3 of 41 in Things to do in Tiberias
Geologic Formation · Nature / Park
An important pilgrimage site for the Christians, Tabgha is believed to be the actual location from which Jesus called out to his disciples Peter and Andrew to follow him. The area has been a popular fishing spot for thousands of years and is commonly mistaken for the location of the miracle of the feeding of the 5,000. Another hint that leads to this false conclusion is the Byzantine floor mosaic depicting fish and loaves, seen inside the church. Plan your visit to Tabgha and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Tiberias road trip planning website.
