Lower Galilee Sights

Korazim National Park

Fodor's Review

These extensive and often remarkable ruins, dating from the 4th or 5th century AD, are on the site of the ancient Jewish village that Jesus condemned for rejecting him (Matthew 11:21), and include a monumental basalt synagogue adorned with the stone carvings of plants and animals. One remarkable artifact, a decorated and inscribed stone "armchair" dubbed the Throne of Moses, is thought to have been used by the worthies of the community during the reading of the

Torah. The lake views from the site are also impressive.
