Mount of Beatitudes, Capernaum

4.5
#3 of 7 in Things to do in Capernaum
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. A visit to Mount of Beatitudes represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Capernaum trip itinerary planning website to plot your vacation.

  • We went to the Mount of Beatitudes during our time around the Sea of Galilee. This a beautiful area and a nice church. Standing on the patio looking down to the Sea of Galilee, it was easy to imagine ...  more »
  • Nice garden, fresh air, nice environment to stay at least 1-2 days. Fair menu and prices. Friendly service  more »
  • Also happened the Primacy of Peter. Great view near the sea of Galilee. A place of prayer and contemplation. Wear respectful and avoid talking loudly so as not to disturb the prayers of the pilgrims.

Where to stay in Capernaum

Capernaum itself offers no accommodations, with the ruins of the village thankfully left undisturbed by modern developments. Visitors usually stay in the large town of Tiberias, itself a fascinating place with Biblical history. Look along the shoreline of Tiberias for some of the more upscale resorts and hotels, with many offering their own tours of the Sea of Galilee and Capernaum. For more budget-friendly options, go farther inland and look along the side streets that run off Highway 77.
