While on a guided tour of churches in the Old City, we stopped to visit the Franciscan Monastery Church of San Salvatore (Savior) near the Latin Patriarch on St. Francis Street between Jaffa and New Gates.

Most interesting to me was the small copy of a statue of St. Peter which is in the Vatican's St, Peter's. This little figure is placed on a wall next to a charity box (Peter's Pence) just before you enter the church. The foot of the statue is rubbed shiny just as the original in the Vatican is.
