Trip Planner: Asia / Israel / Northern District / Galilee Region / Capernaum / Church of the Multiplication
On the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee stands Church of the Multiplication, where some believe Jesus fed 5,000 with just a few loaves of bread and two fish. Constructed in the style of Byzantine architecture and opened in 1982, this modern church occupies the site of two previous 4th- and 5th-century churches.
