Relaxing WALKER – The Magdala hotel is one of Israel´s newest and most uniquely situated hotels in the Galilee. Found in the recently discovered first century town of Magdala, at the shores of the Sea of Galilee, guests can experience an ambience of serenity, extraordinary natural beauty, and ancient history.

Magdala was an ancient Jewish city on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, 3 miles north of Tiberias. In the Babylonian Talmud it is known as Magdala Nunayya, and which some historical geographers think may refer to Tarichaea, literally the place of processing fish. It is believed to be the birthplace of Mary Magdalene.
