  • The church is crowded, a lot of clutter, a lot of noise, many tourists only doing... But around the church, there are places to sit and look at the Sea of Galilee and carry on to Jesus ' time and just listen to him preach the Beatitudes... Touched me very much this place.

  • This may have been the location that Jesus delivered the most famous sermon of all time. It is a beautifully maintained garden and church now, worth visiting in its own right.
  • Very peaceful and quiet place. Beautiful garden and different flowers. Unfortunately no one knows when the monastery site has opened / closed. We were thrown out because of any reason. But, besides that, nice place with good overlook.
