This Church is Located in the northe west side of the Kinnerth lake (or in its other name the sea of Galile) and a few Kilometers from Tiberia.

According to the New Testament this town was first mentioned as the place where Jesus basically lived during his ministry in the Galilee. The belief is that while he lived here he "cured many who were suffering from diseases".
