Korazim National Park (sometimes spelled Chorazin) is located several kilometers north of the sea of Galilee, and about 300 meters above the level of the lake.

At Korazim National Park
The town of Korazim is first mentioned in sources from the Second Temple period, noting the fine wheat the inhabitants raised there; the town flourished at the end of the talmudic period. In the New Testament, Korazim is mentioned as one of three– together with Bethsaida and Capernaum–which Jesus cursed because they did not heed his teachings (Matt. 11:20).
The Synagogue at Korazim National Park
The main attraction of this site is the beautiful Synagogue. It was built at the end of the fourth century or the beginning of the fifth century. Made of black basalt and carved in geometric, floral and faunal patterns.
Korazim is not a big park. You can cover it within 1-2 hours. But, when looking around you can see that this ancient city was much bigger. They reconstructed only a small part of it, I guess due to lack of funding.
Overall, Korazim National Park is quite a nice small National Park, but I wouldn’t consider it as a must see. If you are passing in the area and have a spare couple hours, then sure, why not.
That’s all for today, and I’ll see you in future travels!
