St Peters Church, Tel Aviv-Yafo
Franciscan church and monastery on top of Jaffa Hill, built at the end of the 19th century on the spot where the crusader fortress of Jaffa stood. On display in the magnificent church is the room where Napoleon is said to have stayed in 1799 as well as the remains of the crusader fortress.
Within Old Jaffa, except the clocktower, the other landmark is the remarkable St Peter Monastery.
With its tall brick façade and towering belfry, St. Peter's Church and Monastery is the single largest and most distinctive building in the quaint Old Jaffa area. The building was built over a medieval citadel; Napoleon is said to have visited the monastery. It was most recently renovated in 1903.The interior of the church itself is awesome, reminiscent of cathedrals in Europe, with a high vaulted ceiling, stained glass windows, and marble walls. Masses are conducted in English and in Spanish. A schedule is available at the church and it is open to the public everyday.
