This marvelous lake is formed by the descent of the Jordan River and to the east it's flanked by the Golan mountains, and to the north and west by Lower Galilee. The lake is 212 meters below the Mediterranean Sea's level. It's 21 kilometers long and 12 meters wide. Its waters are fresh and blue and are teeming with fish. Its sudden storms and high tides have made this lake famous, especially in Christian history like the appearances of Jesus Christ with the loaves of bread and fish. Throughout his public life we've seen His works on the shores of this lake. This is also where Christ walked on water, etc. For believers it's a symbol of purity and eternity. It is surrounded by countless towns, cities and basilicas erected around the public life of Jesus.
Qesarya is an important Israeli archaeological site. Located halfway between Tel Aviv and Haifa, the site tells the story of Israel during the time of Emperor Caesar in the year 20 AD. There are temple ruins which we can only imagine as being magnificent. A guide, in my opinion, is almost indispensable so that you can understand what you are looking at. There are magnificent mosaics, still in perfect condition. However, think about bringing bottled water if visiting in summer because it is very hot (40 degrees in August).
The truth is that it is quite shocking to see how people are baptized in the Jordan River. The excitement overwhelms them as it's very important for their spiritual life. And if I still haven't convinced you to visit, you can be creams and other memorabilia from the souvenir shop.
This is as far as we could get on Israel's north coast because the road and rail lines are closed at the border. The border has been problematic since the birth of the state of Israel. Aggravated by the invasion of Lebanon by Israel in the civil war, this country is now very aggravated by the presence of Hezbollah in southern Lebanon. Here the soldiers are not kidding. They don't allow photos or let you get close to the fully closed fence and a long stretch of security.
