Holy Land Tour ~ Tiberias

Golan Heights was our “Home” during our tour around Tiberias. Not that I could comment much about the hotel facilities except for the food as patrons are mostly pilgrims from all around touring the neighboring sites.

Beatitudes/ Tabha / Capharnaum / Sea of Galilee / Mt Bental


Mount of Beatitudes (Hebrew: הר האושר, Har HaOsher)  is located in northern Israel. It was here where Jesus delivered the Sermon on the Mount.

The church, Monte Delle Beatitudini, currently sits on the hill and is linked to the 1836 Historic monastery, Beatitude Monastery by a footpath. The church has an octagonal plan with the dome in the middle and surrounded by a portico. Eight beatitudes can be found drawn on the sides and on the floor.

These beatitudes are located in the garden outside the church building.

Peak Season: Note that there are tours bringing pilgrimages. Therefore, there may be huge crowds and entering the church building may require queuing. If visiting with older children, best to allocate a meeting point and time. Attire: Dress respectfully and appropriately. This is a religious site. If you are in shoulders revealing attire, suggest bringing along a scarf or shawl.
