Loved visiting here! This was one of the highlights of my visit to the Holy Land. Had our own private Mass at one of the outdoor altars, then lunch in the monastery served my the nuns. The views from the porch of the main chapel...More

This could be the place where Jesus pronounced the Beatitudes.The Beatitudes are eight blessings recounted by Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount in the Gospel of Matthew. Each is a proverb-like proclamation. The Mount of Béatitudes is the best viewpoint over the northern part...More

Actual site where our Lord spoke to his followers in the Sermon of the Mount. Great overlook and the peace one finds here can only bring one to relive what Jesus and his followers must have felt.

Very crowded with no place for crowds to go. Church is nothing special. View of lake is decent but nothing amazing. If you decide to go just block off a quick twenty minute visit. Not much more needed.

The crowds. That does me in usually. The site is fine but the crowds are tough to love. Further, this is one of several places where the Sermon on the Mount may have happened. This is a guess at best. The entire place is altered...More

They maintain the grounds well and it is beautiful. But it is crowded and very commercial. Your guide will make a huge difference in your experience.
