It is located in Tabgha, which is a small village on the northwest side of the Sea of Galilee. This modest chapel is made of grey stone, with a simple tower on one side. It sets along the northwest shoreline of the Sea of Galilee. The walls of the original 4th century church can still be seen at the base of the chapel walls on the west end. The Church of the Primacy of Saint Peter, like the former church, incorporates the Mensa Christi (table of Jesus) in its interior. This is the spot followers believe Jesus served the fish breakfast at the reinstatement of Peter.
