“And immediately, while he was still speaking, a cock crowed. The Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said to him, ‘Before the cock crows today, you will deny me three times.’ And he went out and wept bitterly” (Luke 22:60-62).
The part of Jerusalem where this episode took place was on the eastern slope of Mount Sion, not far from the Cenacle (the room of the Last Supper). In the time of Jesus this was a residential district, looking over the Cedron and Hinnom valleys.
