Horvat Minnim is a medieval Arab residence next to the shore of the Sea of Galilee. It is striking how little is done to preserve it. The mosaics are now covered for protection and there is no photo available. The site is not fenced and you can freely enter and climb the walls. The villa is large and seems interesting, but not too much is said on the only plaque available at the site.
