Tabgha - Israel Tours

A tranquil cove on the north shore of the Sea of Galilee marked by a church by early Christians that contains breathtaking mosaics

If you’re traveling to the Sea of Galilee on your tour to the Holy Land, you’ll definitely want to stop by Tabgha. A tranquil cove on the north shore of the Sea of Galilee, it is the backdrop for many biblical stories in the Gospels, such as the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes. The site of this miracle is spoken about in the Gospels (Matt. 14:15-21, Mark 6:35-44 and John 6:1-14) and was marked by a church by early Christians that contains breathtaking mosaics. There is a small mosaic of the fish and loaves, which commemorates the spot where Jesus blessed the bread, that has become a well-known symbol for both this location and the miracle itself. Visitors on Israel tours often walk down the Tourism Ministry-built Tabha-Capernaum promenade that leads to a different part of the cove of Tabha as well as the Church of Peter’s Primacy (the traditional site of what happened after the resurrection in John 21). The name Tabha comes from the Greek word that means “seven springs”, one of which (Spring of Job) pours into the lake a little east of this spot-a lovely stop on Israel tours.
