The Mount of Beatitudes is located on the northwest corner of the Sea of Galilee. A beautiful octagonal Catholic Church has been built as a commemorative church on the “traditional” site.
The church was designed by Antonio Barluzzi and was completed in 1938. It commemorates Jesus' "Sermon on the Mount" (Matthew 5–7) and more especially the Beatitudes (Matt 5:3–10). Italian sisters administer the property.
