Peter, regarded as the most important and spokesman of the Apostles, resided in the house of Simon the Tanner in Jaffa (Acts 10 6): “He lodgeth with one Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea side”.
In this house, Peter had a significant dream, which changed the course of history: including gentiles in the newly founded church. According to tradition, the resurrection of Tabitha also happened on the roof of the house.
The traditional site of the house is located here, close to the ancient port which is in the photograph above Another Roman Catholic tradition locates the house at St. Peter’s church.
