Tabgha, the Place of the Seven Springs

 

According to tradition, Tabgha ou Heptapegon, is the site of the miracle of the loaves and fishes (Mk 8, 1-9). Interesting mosaics adorn the pavement. In the presbytery of the German Benedictine monastery close by, the altar is built on the stone on which Jesus is said to have stood when he performed the miracle. In front of it is a mosaic showing the basket with the loaves and the two fishes.
