Mount Tabor and Church of the Transfiguration

Holy Places

Mount Tabor was an important tribal landmark in the Hebrew Bible, the place where Deborah and Barak fought the Canaanites and crowned with a magnificent church marking the site traditional site where Peter, James and John saw Jesus transfigured and speaking to Moses and Elijah. The church, with beautiful modern mosaics, is built over the ruins of ancient churches and offers a fabulous view from the roof. A taxi service runs to the mountaintop from the village of Shibli below.

The Church of the Transfiguration is a Franciscan church located on Mount Tabor in Israel. It is traditionally believed to be the site where the Transfiguration of Christ took place, an event in the Gospels in which Jesus is transfigured upon an unnamed mountain and speaks with Moses and Elijah.
