Church of Saint Peter in Gallicantu, Jerusalem

4.6
Church of Saint Peter in Gallicantu owes its significance to its location on the spot where the Romans imprisoned Jesus before his crucifixion. The church, its present structure built in 1931, commemorates the repentance of St. Peter after he denounced Jesus three times. A golden rooster sits on the sanctuary roof, and numerous artworks and inscriptions depict scenes from the New Testament. Overlooking the walled city of Jerusalem from the slopes of Mount Zion, the church site provides panoramic views, while an old staircase that Jesus might have used leads down to the Kidron valley on the north side.

  • This is the house of Caiaphas. An amazing historical place to see. You really get a vivid idea of the night Jesus had in front of the High Priest before standing before Pilot.
  • The Church of the cockroach is more than wonderful because you will discover in the cellar how they took the Lord Jesus Christ to this place and go down with the rope and leave him for days without food or eating until they took him to trial at Pilate. And this is what we did not know about him. In this place, I advise you to visit this church because it deserves to discover the truth of the place, and the church is more than wonderful.
