Church of St. Peter in Gallicanto: believed to be constructed over the House of Caiaphas, the High Priest of Jerusalem 2,000 years ago, who imprisoned Yeshua and interrogated him the night before his trial before Pontius Pilate (Luke 22:54). This church was constructed in the 1930s by the Assumptionist Fathers. The name of the church recalls the denial of Yeshua by Petrus, as mentioned in the Gospels: “Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. and immediately the cock crew. And Peter remembered the word of Yeshua, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly” (Matthew, 26 – 34 – 74-75).
