A pretty domed church & garden area, where Jesus is said to have delivered his sermon on the mount. Lovely views over the Sea of Galilee, with a nice souvenir shop & refreshment stand. You can easily visit alongside Capernaum while you're in the area.

A stop at the Mt of Beatitudes and the church is definitely a must stop while in Israel. So much history in and around this area. Blessed are the peacemakers... So cool to be here

This place is conducive to moments of solitude in prayer. Silence is strictly observe and modest attire is advised.

Up until 5:00 it's open for you to visit the place where Jesus delivered his famous Sermon on the Mount. After 5, it's a resort with a very quiet atmosphere. The grounds are a fantastic garden with the battitudes on cut stones around the place....More

Another site for the pilgrims trail. Found the church and site very restful, peaceful and quiet. Well worth a visit.

We arrived after the church closed so we drove around back and watched Tiberias light up as we read Jesus' sermon. It was pretty amazing. The grounds around the chapel seemed nice but we were very happy with our visit just outside the grounds.

The chapel, beautiful and small, encourages visitors to spend more of their visit outside. The gardens and the view from the top of the hill are picturesque. On my third visit to this place, the grounds were closed (we were there around 1 p.m.), so...More
