Capernaum Harbour



Reconstruction of the harbour of Capernaum on the Sea of Galilee at the time of Christ, based on archaeological remains discovered by the archaeologist Mendel Nun. Several piers, which can still be seen when the water level is low, jutted out into the sea to provide a quiet and safe harbor for fishing boats.
Capernaum was the city where Jesus lived after he left Nazareth (Matthew 4.13; Mark 2.1; Luke 4.31; John 2.12).
