The most impressive thing about the Church of the Loaves & Fishes is the wonderful mosaic floor, some of which is part of the original church built around 325 AD. The history of the place is palpable.

Byzantine Christians built two churches along the shoreline to recall two separate events in Jesus' life: the feeding of the 5000 and the restoration of the disciples, including Peter, that followed the miraculous catch of fish.

I was captivated by the floor mosaics. So very beautiful. The church itself is very low-key, a refreshing change from the over-the-top places. The visitors inside ebb and flow with the tour buses' arrivals and departures, but it is possible to sit and just experience...More
