Worth noting is the golden rooster that sits atop a cross on the top of the domed roof. "Gallicantu" is translated "cock's crow" - Peter's lowest moment.

This place is said to the location of the house of caiphas where Jesus was taken. Gallivanting means cock crows. Saint Peter denied the Lord three times and the cock crowed each time of his denial. The place is a nice lace to visit especially...More

Just outside the Old City. It is worth visiting. There's a nice, and quiet part outside with a view of the Mount of Olives where you can pray if you wish to. The Church itself is beautiful inside.

Perched on a very steep hillside, church has many intersting features - doors, glass, statue, crypt. Also caffee and toilets. Disabled access is there, but a bit heroic in places

We had a very nice stop at Gallicantu where we were able to go inside the building to look down on where St. Peter met, ate, and slept while doing his ministry. There were also archeological sites surrounding the building where you can envision how...More

This Church commemorates several significant occurrences including Jesus’ questioning and imprisonment. Also, it commemorates Peter’s denial of Jesus.

Interesting but to see how Peter denied Jesus and then the dungeon where Jesus was held. We sang some hymns. So solemn.
