Located in Israel
The Sea of Galilee is a site of great religious importance in the Christian and Jewish faiths.
It is not a sea at all, but a large freshwater lake in Israel where it's said that Jesus walked on water.
The 'sea' is the lowest freshwater lake on Earth, and sits in the depression of Jordan River at between 215 and 209 meters below sea level.
