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 clearly visible on the right (east) side of the image.
