It's a bit out of the way from the other churches, but you must try and see this church. It's all to do with StPeter's denial of Jesus and the statues they made of Peter and 2 servant girls and 1 Roman soldier. The church...More

We visited as part of an organised pilgrimage and were able to have a reading in the tomb as just our group - it was very moving. Interesting sculptures outside and an area of stone that was allegedly untouched since Jesus' time that everyone was...More

This place is for remembering Peter's denial during Jesus' trial by Caiaphas. A reflection of how the Lord's love for Peter has been demonstrated. A place to remember.

The rooster crowed and Peter denied knowing Jesus three times, just as Jesus and predicted. Note the artwork at this church and especially the entry door.
