There is a small chapel and a mini amphitheater. Worth a look and a photo is the statue of st Peter and Jesus Christ as if being bestowed upon as the very first Pope. In fact it was visited by the Papal hierarchy.

Built on the lakeside, the Church offers a beautiful scene of the Sea of Galilee. Architecture of the Church is not as impressive as other churches in the area, but the Rock inside the Church bears significance in accordance to the Church tradition.

One of the many sites around the Sea of Galilee where we encounter Jesus in his ministry. Here we are reminded of when Jesus restored Peter and made him the rock upon which he built his church.
