A truly breathtaking location in the Holy Land is Tabgha, a quiet cove on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee and the scene of many Gospel stories, such as the Multiplication of Loaves and Fishes (Matthew 14:15-21, Mark 6:30-46, John 6:1-14). Today Christians touring Israel will find the Church of Multiplications that contains a beautiful mosaic of small loaves and fishes, marking the location where Jesus blessed the bread, a celebrated symbol since early Christians marked the site centuries ago.
Magdala also called Dalmanutha is located in the Sea of Galilee, a major 1st century port, and a focal point of exchange and trade, known for Mary Magdalene being born in this wealthy trading and fishing center (Mark 8:10 ; Matthew 15:39 , Luke 8:2 ). The port was a major exporter of salted fish to business sectors as far away as Europe. Archaeological discoveries in the 21st century have made it a Israel Christian pilgrimage tour destination.
