The Gospel road is about 60 kilometers, but we will walk about one hour down the mountain. Once we will make our way down we will see a wonderful view of Jezreel Valley. Then we will proceed to Mount of Beatitudes (where Jesus taught “The Sermon on the Mount”) and then we will visit the Church of Multiplication in Tabgha (where Jesus preformed the miracle of the Loaves and Fishes) and we will do the renewal of vows at St Peter of Primacy.
