View looking north, down on to the small Plain of Gennesaret/Chinnereth/Ginnosar, from the peak of the Arbel Cliffs.

Josephus waxes eloquent about its fertility mentioning growth of such diverse crops as walnuts, palm trees, figs, olives, and grapes (War 3.10.8 [3.516–21]).

The northwestern portion of the Sea of Galilee is just visible on the right of center portion of the image.  The cliffs of Arbel are visible on the right (south) of the image.
