The modern church rests on the site of two earlier churches and commemorates the Christina tradition of Jesus' feeding of five thousand on the site. One of the main highlights of the church are its restored 5th century mosaics. These mosaics are the earliest known examples of figured pavement in Christian art in the Holy Land. The Church of the Primacy of St. Peter is a humble Franciscan chapel also located in Tabgha, It commemorates the spot where according to Christian tradition Jesus reinstated Peter as chief among the Apostles. The church contains a projection of limestone rock in front of the present altar which is venerated as a "Mensa Christi", (Latin for table of Christ).

It stands on the traditional site of Christ's teaching of the Lord's Prayer. (Luke 11:2-4) Emperor Constantine built a church over a cave here in 4th century, and this has been partially reconstructed. Plaques in the cloister bear the Lord's Prayer in 62 different languages. The church is unroofed and has steps that lead into a grotto where some Christians believe that Jesus revealed to his disciples his prophesy of the destruction of Jerusalem and the second coming. Unfortunately the cave containing the grotto partially collapsed when it was discovered in 1910. The church is located in the At-Tur district of Jerusalem which has a population of about 18,000 mostly Muslim Arabs, with a small Christian minority. less

The Hotel was built on a hilltop on the plan of the ancient masseries, the old apulian farmhouses as a comfortable 4 star resort, a few steps from one of the most pristine seas in Italy. Like the old farmhouses it has its own orchard where seasonal fruits and vegetables are grown for its kitchen. Their family restaurant on the beach right below the hotel is a hot spot and serves the freshest local sea food. From San Gregorio one can hire a boat to ride along the coastline which is dotted with Paleolithic caves and endless coves for bathing. The trip continues to Leuca and its lighthouse. This is the southernmost tip of the peninsula where the Ionian sea and the Adriatic sea meet. If one is in the mood for culture the city Lecce is very close by. This is a jewel of a baroque city with dramatic architecture and a lively scene. Highly recommended. 73053 Loc.
