Tiberias, spa in Galilee

 

Tiberias is a city on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee and is the largest city in the Jordan Valley. At 210 m below sealevel, it enjoys thermal springs of great repute since antiquity. This spa is like a jewel in a green countryside closely linked with Biblical History. The city was built by Herod's son between 14 and 18 c.e.  After the fall of the Second Temple, Tiberias became the religious center of the country.
