Very nice with interesting history and location, worth going, but do not expect very much from it, still worth going.

Mass at 7am each day and then open for the public 08:00-11:00 and 15:00-17:00. There are services in English, Hebrew and Polish (see the info board for times). If you visit outside the mass times then you are free to wonder around the church. Lots of stone work inside and it is clean and well kept. Look at the pulpit... More

This is a beautiful church located in Jaffa. It is beautiful enough to cause the tourists to stop the endless picture taking for a moment, and actually sit, take in and enjoy the beauty around them! This church is called St. Peter's because of the vision St. Peter had there in Jaffa found in Acts 10 of the Bible.
