Magdala – the crossroads of Jewish and Christian history was discovered in 2009. Mandatory archaeological tests required for building unearthed the only first century synagogue on the Sea of Galilee – one of only seven synagogues from this period in the world.  The remains of the 2,000 year old city of Magdala, home of Mary Magdalene are still being uncovered and it is certain that Jesus visited and taught in this synagogue.
