The gallery hates me, and I already made this a week ago so it's just easier...
Ha'Galil is the Christian stronghold of Israel, in the north of the country next to the Golan Heights. Galilee is the site of nearly the entire life of Jesus from when he started performing miracles up until just before his death which occurred in Jerusalem. As a result of this, the major sites are enshrined by the major sects of Christianity. One of the most preeminent of these is Kfar Nakhum, or Capernaum in the Bible, where Jesus was said to dwell and teach. Kfar Nachum is split into two separate cities: one for the Catholic church and one for the Greek Orthodox church.
The entrance to Catholic Capernaum. True to Catholic tradition there is an entrance fee and a monk standing ready to kick your heathen ass if you don't pay up.
These flowers grow in a huge tree that covers the entrance to the site, and look dazzling in the morning sun.
A statue of Saint Peter, to the left of the entrance. Apparently Saint Peter was the cutting-edge in first-century AD Catholic monk fashion.
The first thing you see in front of you is this statue of Jesus.
Ruins of the city of Capernaum.
The centerpiece of Catholic Capernaum, this is the Synagogue where it is believed Jesus preached.
The church of Catholic Capernaum.
This stands off to the side in a garden, but it caught my eye. "May Peace Prevail On Earth." ...(as long as you paid the entrance fee, you stingy bastard).
