5th century mosaic at the Church of the Multiplying of the Loaves and Fishes in Tabgha.Tabgha is not a city, but a small area on the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee. In ancient times, it was known as Heptapegon "Place of the Seven Springs"
These seven springs produce warm water, which increases the production of algae in this part of the lake, which attracts more fish. Fisherman have flocked to Heptapegon for thousands of years
The floor mosaic depicts scenes with Nilotic flora and fauna, a city building with a gate and towers, a tower, a pavilion, and a column nilometer.
