The Church of the Mount of Beatitudes

On the top of Har Nahum (Mount Nahum) is the Church of the Mount of Beatitudes, one of the most sacred and special places in Christian tradition. According to Christian tradition, this is the place where Jesus delivered the Sermon on the Mount, which included the core of his teachings. The church is located on the top of the Mount of Beatitudes, which rises to the height of 125 meters above the Sea of Galilee and provides a wonderful view of the area. Traditionally, it was here at the Mount of Beatitudes that Jesus chose his Twelve Apostles from among his disciples. The basalt Church of the Mount of Beatitudes was built in 1938, according to the plans of the famous Italian architect, Antonio Barluzzi. It is built in the shape of an octagonal, with each of its eight sides featuring one verse of the eight Beatitudes of the Sermon on the Mount. All of the verses in the Sermon on the Mount begin with the word "Blessed” and hence the name of the place, "the Mount of Beatitudes”, or "Blessings". Near the church are a monastery, a hostel of Franciscan nuns, a garden and a farm belonging to the Italian mission in the Holy Land.
