The Magic History of Lake Kinneret

Magical Location, Location, Location

The Sea of Galilee is the lowest sweet-water lake in the world, formed with great architectural talent by nature itself. For thousands of years, the lake and its shores have been a point of attraction for pilgrims and settler colonies. Adjacent to the walls of the Old City of Tiberias, the Leaning Tower and the quaint alleyway leading up to the Greek Orthodox monastery, AGAM occupies one of the most sought-after spots on the shores of the historic lake. These 18th-century walls, a symbol of the city appearing in its coat of arms, are a rare architectural treasure, a mosaic of towering turrets and ancient edifices. AGAM residents enjoy a striking blend of old and new, a modern building in a historic location.

In the Heart of Historic Tiberias

The City of Tiberias

AGAM faces the walls of the Old City of Tiberias, on one of the most attractive plots of land in this historically significant region. Residents enjoy a breathtaking view of the Sea of ​​Galilee and the Golan Heights, with direct access to the beach.

The walls of ancient Tiberias were built in the 18th century by Dahar al-Omar, ruler of the Galilee at the time. They surrounded the city and established its borders until the early 20th century. Remains of these walls—including the Citadel and Leaning Tower—have become synonymous with the city of Tiberias and appear in the city’s official coat of arms. A quick glance from AGAM’s terraces is enough to make you fall in love.
Fascinating History
Tiberias was founded in 20 CE by Herod Antipas and was named after the Roman Emperor, Tiberius. It is listed as one of four holy cities in the Land of Israel and was the last seat of the Jewish Sanhedrin Court. Here, the Jerusalem Talmud was edited and sealed, Tiberian Hebrew was introduced, Sages and liturgists made their homes and legendary intellectuals and spiritual giants of the Jewish people lived and were buried. Tiberias is also home to many ancient synagogues and unprecedented historical discoveries, dear to both Judaism and Christianity.

This year, Tiberias is celebrating 2,000 years to its establishment.
