One of the main highlights of the church is the 5th century mosaic on the floor featuring a basket of bred being flanked by two fishes – The mosaic is the earliest known samples of figured pavement in Christian art in the Holy Land. The mosaics in the two transepts depict various birds and plants, with a main focus given to the lotus flower. This flower, which is not indigenous to the Galilee, suggests the artist’s use of a Nilotic landscape popular in Roman and early-Byzantine art. All the other motifs depict flora and species from the Galilee.
The church was build around a black rock underneath the church altar, which is said by generation after generations of Galilee locals, where Jesus blessed and broke bread, and where today is a popular holy land destination for Christians traveling to Israel.
