Tiberias

is considered to be a resort town. Most of the attractions, hotels, restaurants and cafes are concentrated in the Old Town near the coast, where we went.

It was built on the foundation of the temple of the Crusader era. Later it was rebuilt and restored. There’s a large statue of the Apostle in the courtyard. This is a replica of the statue in Rome's St. Peter church. There’s also a statue of the Virgin Mary, which was placed in gratitude to the soldiers of the Polish Army during the Second World War.

23tiberias-israel-p2.jpgThe mosque was built during the times of Bedouin Sheikh Zahir al-Omar, who had revolted against the Turks. He was loyal to the Jews and urged them to settle in 

Tiberias

, in the middle of the 18th century. Now the mosque is not used.
