The lake of Tiberias is also called Lake Kinnereth, or lake of Gennesaret or Sea of Galilee.
Located in the northeast of Israel, it is a freshwater lake rich in fish with an area of 160 km2. To the south of the lake crosses the river Jordan connecting it thus to the dead sea.
To the west of the east lake we have the city of Tiberias, which was created by Herod Antipas in honor of the Roman emperor Tiberius. Today it is a seaside resort with more than 30,000 inhabitants, renowned for its hot springs and numerous pilgrimage sites, both Jewish and Christian, and its archaeological sites.
