The Mount of Beatitudes


The Mount of Beatitudes is located on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee. It is located in a picturesque site between Tabgha and Mount Arbel on the slopes surrounding the sea.  This site is extremely beautiful because of the scenery of the sea and the gardens that are immaculate where every kind of gorgeous flowering bush is present.  The flowering plants and trees will sometimes overtake you with their intoxicating, luscious fragrance that invites you to sit and enjoy and just be still.  I personally love just sitting on a bench and watching the people walk by in such reverence to the beauty of the gardens surrounding them.  The highlight is that somewhere in the area Jesus spoke forth his most inspiring words called the “Sermon on the Mount” found in Matthew 5:1-5.  In the center of the garden is a Catholic Church that was built in the Byzantine style.

This is a must to just visit the gardens in this site and to know that Jesus was sitting with the people on a hillside speaking His Words of truth.
