The Church of St. Peter in Gallicantu is located in Jerusalem on a hillside on a slope of Mount Zion. This stunning Roman Catholic church commemorates the triple denial of Jesus by His apostle Peter, his repentance, and reconciliation with Jesus after the Resurrection.
Mount Zion, also written as Sion, in the Old Testament became a symbol and metaphor for the Promise Land, the Land of Israel. In the New Testament Mount Zion metaphorically is referred as the heavenly Jerusalem, God's eternal holy city.
The Cenacle, also better known as the Upper Room is traditionally the site of The Last Supper that you will visit during your Holy Land Israel trip. This two-story room in Jerusalem commemorates the Last Supper shared by Jesus, as well as several other events described in the New Testament took place such as; the Washing of the Feet, the resurrection appearance of Jesus, the gathering of the disciples after the Ascension of Jesus, election of Saint Matthias as apostle, and the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples on Pentecost. The room is also directly above the Tomb of David and near to Dormition Abbey on Mount Zion.
