The Church of the Twelve Apostles in Capernaum (Kfar Nahum)

The Church of the Twelve Apostles (also called "The Church of the Apostles”), located in the north-western corner of Capernaum (Kfar Nahum) on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, is a Greek Orthodox Church and as such it is elegant and beautiful and built in the shape of a cross. The walls of the Church of the Twelve Apostles are white and it features distinctive bright pink colored domes. The name of the Church of the Twelve Apostles, which was built in 1931, points at an important local event- according to Christian tradition it was in this area that Jesus chose his twelve Apostles. Those who will not be satisfied with an outside view of the Church of the Twelve Apostles and enter it will discover beautiful frescos that are filled with elements taken from the New Testament. And if you are already here, it is very much recommended to visit the nearby "Tayelet HaBsora” (Gospel Promenade) and the other churches of Capernaum (Kfar Nahum) as well.
