  • Nothing special but it does afford decent views (though it blocks others) of the house of Peter. My kids liked it a lot.  more »
  • Make sure you check out the pink Jesus mosaic. The church has a unique architectural design that resembles an octagonal UFO. The ruins of "Peter's house" can be viewed from a glass floor in the middle...  more »

  • Very nice place, warm people!
  • Nice preservation at the Capernaum location. A church has been built over it to memorialize the probable house of Peter's mother in law. I liked the quotes in Latin and wood work around the walls of the church. Nice beach front.
  • St. Peter's house lays on the ground as archaeological findings and has octagonal shape church. Nice architecture.
  • Irremovable flying saucer landed on a kind of mother-church.
  • Church of primacy st.peter
