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, Italian, Spanish, Polish and German. A schedule is available at the church and it is open to the public everyday.
