The Church of St. Peter's House in Capernaum (Kfar Nahum)

The Church of St. Peter's House, which is located inside the Kfar Nahum (Capernaum) National Park in the northern part of the Sea of Galilee, is a Catholic Church. The Church of St. Peter's House, which was built by the Israeli "Solel Boneh” construction company at the end of the 1980s, pays homage to the ancient churches which existed here before, such as an octagonal Byzantine church from the 5th century CE. Thus the Church of St. Peter's House is also octagonal and it stands on concrete pillars above the ancient remains. As befitting its location, the Church of St. Peter's House is filled with motifs that are connected with the Sea of Galilee. The Church of St. Peter's House is reminiscent in its shape of a fishing boat and on its walls are featured fish, waves and fishing nets, as well as scenes from the life of St. Peter.
