Mount of Beatitudes, Capernaum

(4.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Visit Mount of Beatitudes, believed to be where Jesus delivered his Sermon on the Mount. Remains of an old Byzantine church dating back to the fourth century prove that Christians have been commemorating this site for over 1,600 years. Today, a humble Roman Catholic church sits on top of the hill, and it is here that Pope John Paul II celebrated mass in March of 2000. The church is surrounded by beautifully maintained gardens and a captivating view of the Sea of Galilee. Make Mount of Beatitudes a part of your Capernaum vacation plans using our Capernaum vacation trip planner.
