Gallicantu means "cockcrow" and this lovely modern church recalls the arrest of Jesus and his warning to Peter that he would deny him three times before the cock crow (Mark 14:66-72, Luke 22:54). Several churches built over the centuries on this spot recalled Jesus' trial before Caiaphas and Peter's denial. There are remarkable cisterns and storage rooms of the Herodian period, and a stepped walk that leads towards Mount Zion. It is likely that the High Priest's house was in the "Herodian Quarter" of the Old City, where wealthy residents lived in that period. Call for information on Catholic masses.
