Some Background on the Church of the Beatitudes in Galilee.

The Church of the Beatitudes in Galilee is built on the site where tradition says that Jesus gave the Sermon on the Mount. The octagonal floorplan represents the eight beatitudes.

The Church was designed by the Italian architect, Antonio Barluzzi. It was built between 1936-1938 on the site of some 4th century Byzantine ruins.

The Church of the Beatitudes is maintained and overseen by the National Association for assistance to Italian Missionaries (ANSMI).
