Mount of the Beatitudes
In the 1930s Franciscan monks conducted archaeological excavations on the Mount of the Beatitudes. The remains of a small, one-nave church from the late 4th century, decorated with mosaics, were discovered. The modern church ("The Beatitude Monastery") was built in 1937. The Mount of the Beatitudes welcomes visitors with a marvelous garden and a wonderful view of the Sea of Galilee.
