This sermon contains nine verses, each starting with “Blessed is the…” …Latin translation gave the hill its name – Beati-tudes.
The site, today, offers a Roman Catholic Franciscan church, monastery, hostel, gardens, farm and a visitor’s center.

The Church is a remarkable building surrounded with beautiful gardens; overlooking the Sea of Galilee.
The feeling while visiting is not only of aesthetics and beauty but also of being surrounded by the various Christian traditional sites.
