This Roman Catholic Church is worth a visit. The floor plan is octagonal, the eight sides representing the eight Beatitudes. The church is Neo-Byzantine in style with a marble veneer casing the lower interior walls and gold mosaic in the dome. Around the altar are mosaic symbols on the pavement representing Justice, Prudence, Fortitude, Temperance, Faith, Hope, and Charity.

Worth going in and taking a look while you are at the Mount of Beatitudes which is an amazing place. The gardens themselves are the best part of the tour ( I give them 5 stars ) as it has a very serene tranquil atmosphere and beautiful view overlooking the Sea of Galilee

Although this church is very small, it is quite lovely and unique in its design. Although simple in its design and decorations, there are some interesting things to see in this church. Look for the vestments donated by Pope Paul VI and John Paul II displayed in the entrance/exit area.

This is a great place to take photos of the Sea of Galilee. Nice place to walk around. I went there with our tour group and loved the scenery. We went in March and the weather was perfect. There are some really nice gardens there to see...it was just very relaxing and beautiful.

Many of the churches had noise in them, this was profoundly quiet. There was some sense of respect that was greater than most other places we have visited.
