Tagha, Peter's Primacy and Mount of the Beatitudes

The Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes at Tagha stands on the site of a 4th-century church, displaying Byzantine mosaic decorations that are among the most elegantly executed in the Holy Land. Nearby, on the Tabgha beach, stands the Church of the Primacy of St. Peter. This squat building of black basalt, built in 1934, is where Jesus is believed to have made his third appearance to his disciples after his Resurrection.

The Mount of Beatitudes, believed to be the setting for Jesus’ most famous discourse, th e Sermon on the Mount, is one of the most beautifully serene places in the Holy Land.
