The site dates back to Jesus’ time, life and work.
Many conquerors have made their home in this location, throughout the years after Jesus’ time.
Interesting finds are the relics of an Orthodox-Franciscan Church (the Church of the Disciples).
The Franciscan Church had purchased the lands and has established base ever since. The relics of an ancient Byzantine-era synagogue are also located on the grounds.
According to tradition, Saint Peter made his home here.
When walking at the archeological site it feels as if one is walking in the path of Jesus as well as in his footsteps.
