The Magdala pilgrimage guesthouse was the primary focus of the vision Christ gave to Father Juan years ago. While we have been beneficiaries of the grace of God by miraculously discovering this Holy Site, the original plan to provide quality accommodations for pilgrims from around the world has remained unchanged.

Architectural blueprints are completed and construction plans are moving forward. The guesthouse is the first priority of Phase Two because of its importance to pilgrims and the pending expiration of the government grant.

The Magdala Guesthouse will feature a warm and welcoming lobby area for pilgrims to meet and interact. Services in the lobby area will include a gift shop and concierge. A state of the art Business Center will enable guests to reach out around the world to friends and family, as well as conduct business.

The guesthouse will also feature conference and meeting rooms, a pool, and fitness facility. It will feature two parallel hallways where guests will find 153 generously sized rooms and suites. It will be centrally located in close proximity to the restaurant, the first century synagogue, the visitors center, Duc In Altum and the archeological park.

Dining

The restaurant will be adjacent to the guest house and will provide a high quality dining experience with beautiful views of the Sea of Galilee. Pilgrims traveling through the Galilee often are in need of a place to stop, relax, and enjoy lunch or dinner.

The restaurant at Magdala will provide seating for 300 people inside the comfortable air-conditioned facility. There will also be seating for an additional 300 people on the restaurant patio, and seating for 300 more on the restaurant rooftop. These three dining areas will allow the restaurant to accommodate large groups of pilgrims, as well as provide meeting areas for smaller groups.

Worship Center

Magdala is situated on the shore of the beautiful Sea of Galilee. Looking across the water you can see the landscape that is virtually unchanged since the time of Christ. Pilgrims often look for a quiet place to share a devotion or Bible study – and large groups often have difficulty finding a place where several busloads of pilgrims can meet to have a mass or worship service together.

In addition to the chapels in the beautiful Duc In Altum, Magdala will provide a large Seaside Worship Center with seating for up to 500 people overlooking the Sea of Galilee. This will allow for large groups to gather to worship at Magdala.

Religious, educational, and cultural programs will also be offered at the Seaside Worship Center.

Additionally, for individual groups Magdala will prepare three Lakeside Chapels, with room for up to 50 people each.
