This is the place where St Peter received his "marching orders" from God to evangalize the Roman pagans and convert them to Christianity. This is an active Christian church, and not a tourist attraction. Christian dress codes for attending church apply!!

The church is simple, but beautiful. Don't expect European cathedral style, but think old world. The church is right in the middle of old town with beautiful doors and chimes. My favorite piece inside was the angel (Gabriel?) on the right just as you walk...More

When looking at Old Jaffa from the beaches of Tel Aviv, you cannot miss the church's bell tower perched high on the hightop. The church is simple inside and offers a nice sightseeing option when in Old Jaffa.

During your visit in Old Jaffa you must stop in this beautiful church which is open for the public. Nice and friendly church, excellent architecture, peaceful (avoid Sundays) is the place where you can see not only catholics but othodoxes too (as I am). I...More

On Sunday mornings you can be sure it's open. Slip into the back of the religious service (in English) and gaze around for a few minutes. Then step down to the port for a coffee. Pleasant!

A church used by a variety of communities including Polish and Greek. Peaceful oasis from the sun and steps in the old port dating back four thousand years

It is a Franciscan church. The current building dates back from the late 19th century. If you are in Jaffa, pay the church a quick visit. It is located quite centrally and you will most probably stumble upon it while wandering in the small streets...More
