Photo and description
A mountain that rises 125 meters above the southwestern coast of the Sea of Galilee. Here Jesus delivered the famous Sermon on the Mount. Each part of the sermon begins with the word `` Blessed ... '' - hence the name of the mountain - `` Mount of Beatitudes '' Here Jesus chose 12 apostles. The place has been revered by Christians since Byzantine times and then there was a church on the side of the mountain.
The Catholic church dedicated to the Beatitudes was built in 1937 by the architect Antonio Barluzzi. The temple belongs to the Franciscans and has an octagonal shape, symbolizing the eight beatitudes. Inside the temple, in alabaster windows, the eight Beatitudes are recorded. The open gallery of the temple offers a beautiful view of the Sea of Galilee.
