Saint Peter’s Church in Tiberias

saint peter church tiberiasSaint Peter’s church is a Catholic church in the heart of Tiberias, located in the midst of the city’s promenade and dinning area.

The church was founded by the Crusaders in the 12th century CE, yet after defeated in the Horns of Hattin, the Muslim conquored Tiberias and converted the church into a Mosque.

However, in the 18th century the Franciscans re-purchased the property, and reverted it to a church. Devoting the church to Saint Peter, an exact replica of his sculpture at the Vatican (by Arnolfo di Cambio) was placed at the entrance. After World War II a memomrial wall was added to by the Polish Catholic church, including a central image of the Black Madonna of Czestochowa.
