Info: Tabgha

Tabgha is located on the north coast of the Sea of ​​Galilee and it’s also the name of the place where it is believed the multiplication of the loaves and fishes took place, as described in the Gospel of Matthew (Matt. 14: 13-21).

You will find in Tabgha the Church of the Multiplication, a Benedictine church, decorated with mosaics with representations of flora and fauna. One of the mosaics has a basket with fishes and loaves. Beside the altar there is a column that was used to measure the level of the Nile, so it is assumed that everything was brought from Egypt.

Matthew 14:19
Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes.
