Matthew 11:23:
“And you, Capernaum, who are exalted to heaven, will be brought down to Hades”.
Capernaum was a settlement on the shore of the Sea of Galilee in ancient time. The site is a ruin today, unfortunately.
The original name in Hebrew is Kfar Nahum or “Nahum’s village”.
The town is mentioned in the New Testament. It was reported to have been the home of the apostles Peter, Andrew, James and John, as well as Matthew.
Jesus taught in the synagogue in Capernaum on the Sabbath. In Capernaum also, Jesus healed a man who had the spirit of an unclean devil and healed a fever in Simon Peter's mother-in-law. It is also the place where a Roman Centurion asked Jesus to heal his servant.

You can watch my 3 min 09 sec HD Video Capernaum Orthodox Church
and my 3 min 32 sec HD Video Sea of Galilee out of my Youtube channel.

    Fine photos in your travelogues and tips! I never realized that the Sea of Galilee was the lowest freshwater lake on Earth.

    Thats another interesting place mentioned already in the Holy Bible and the Church of the 12 Apostles looks really great inside. Its a pity that I have not seen that when I had been in Israel.
