A site on the Eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee, believed by Christian tradition to be the place where Jesus healed two man possesed by demons (“The Swine Miracle”, Mat. 8:28-33). The site was discovered by chance in the 1970’s while constructing a road.
It bears a large monastic complex next to a chapel built in front of a cave. It seems that the site was damaged by the 749 CE earthquake and shortly after was abandoned. Parts of the Monastery were reconstructed, and it is maintained by Israel’s Nature Parks Authority.
