Church of Petrus in Gallicantu

Petrus in galicantuThe Church of “Petrus in gallicantu” (Latin: “Peter of the Cock crow“) on the eastern slope of Mount Zion , marks by Christian tradition, the place where Jesus was imprisoned when interrogated by the high priest, and denied by Peter (Mark 14:30).

The current church, built in 1924-1931, is constructed over ancient churches and over remains of an estate of a Jew from the Second temple period. The possibility that the estate belonged to a high priest cannot be rules out, nor can it be proven.
