This is a new synagogue built between 2nd and 5th century over the old synagogue where Jesus would have did His speeches. We can see the ruins of the previous very humble synagogue in a corner at left, but not in this photo.Persians destroyed the church where the home of Peter was and after Byzantines destroyed the synagogue, something typical of this region.

Esta é uma sinagoga nova erguida entre os séculos 2 e 5 sobre as ruínas da sinagoga original do povoado, onde Jesus teria feito seus ensinamentos. As ruínas humildes da velha sinagoga podem ser vistas num canto á esquerda, mas não nesta foto. A igreja que protegia a casa de Pedro foi destruída pelos persas e depois os bizantinos destruíram a sinagoga, algo comum nessa região.

Hi Jorge

Impressive ruins with nice repetition of the Corinthian columns. Good sharpness and I like the angled pov. The support structure is unusual. Tfs!
