Long Description:
Capernaum is an ancient fishing village on the north shore of the Sea of Galilee in Israel. It is home to a celebrated Byzantine-era synagogue as well as the house where Jesus healed a paralytic and St. Peter's mother-in-law.

The village of Capernaum was Jesus' adopted home in the Galilee and several of his miracles happened here. Capernaum is mentioned 16 times in connection with Jesus's Galilean ministry and appears in the biblical record only in the Gospels. Today a Franciscan church dominates the site, and the Franciscan order was the one to first protect and restore Capernaum after centuries of neglect and oblivion. (visit link)
