Located on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee, Tiberias
is a favorite health and holiday resort as well as a pilgrimage destination.
The city lies on a mountain slope, beautifully looking over the Golan
Heights at the other side of the lake.
Christians refer many episodes to the Sea of Galilee (Lake Kinerret
in Hebrew), such as the Multiplication of the Loaves and the Walking
on the Waters.
Near Tiberias, where the Jordan River leaves the Sea of Galilee,
is the Yardenit,
the site where Christians belive that Jesus was baptized.
The shores of the Sea of Galilee are dotted with trees and green lawns,
and the waters of the lake are pleasantly clear and cool.
