On tour, we saw many churches! This one however, truly moved me! To think that this was where Christ delivered The Sermon on the Mount was almost too much for me to take in. The grounds are magnificent. You have lush gardens AND the Sea of Galilee! Wonderful gift shop here too - prices very reasonable.
If you are going to attend a Mass here, come early! Seating is limited and some of it is behind the altar ( its in the round ) so it makes it hard to see the entire Liturgy. I was actually more moved by the outside grounds than inside the church. However, we were moved along far too quickly for my taste. A lot of beauty to still be absorbed... Such a wonderful, peace filled spot!
