The Church of St. Peter in Gallicantu in Jerusalem is called so for "Gallicantu" means cock's-crow in Latin. The Church of St. Peter in Gallicantu commemorates Saint Peter's triple denounciation of Jesus:
"And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this day, even in this night, before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice" (Mark 14:30)
The Church of St. Peter in Gallicantu is located on the eastern slopes of Mount Zion.
Within the church's courtyard is a statue depicting the events of denial. These include the major characters in the story- the Roman soldier, the cock and the woman.
Inside the church are additional mosaics with many figures from the New Testament.
The church is run by a French order- the Assumptionist Fathers, named after Mary and her assumption into heaven. The order was established in 1887 and built its main facilities in Jerusalem in 1889.
