A igreja é lotada, muita desorganização, muito barulho, muitos turistas turistando apenas...mas ao redor da igreja, tem lugares para se sentar e olhar o mar da Galileia e se transportar para época de ... more »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.
