  • 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.
  • Loved it! Peaceful place! But it was busier than normal, from what I was told.
  • The pathway to the church is lined with blessings sign leading all the way to the church. The octagon shaped iconic church has beautiful architecture and paintings. The surrounding areas are planted with beautiful flowers and facing the breezy Tiberias lake.
  • Stunning! Loads of places to walk. The view is fantastic. Loads of tourists but plenty of room to move about.
