Places of celebration

Saint-Peter in Gallicantu offers different praying and celebration areas in and outside the church.

These different places allow pilgrims to pray and meditate, alone or in group.

Three chapels have been installed in the garden for pilgrims who would like to continue their visit with a prayer:

  • The chapel of the garden, close to the church, offers a panoramic view of the Mount of Olives (60 seats)
  • The chapel of the stairs is located next to the Holy Stairs (30 seats)
  • The chapel of the valley, near the Holy Stairs, is oriented towards Jerusalem’s ramparts and overhangs the Tyropeon valley (120 seats et 80 standing places)
