Church of the Annunciation

Tracing the stories of the Bible you cannot omit visiting the Nazareth in “Jesus of Nazareth”. In this town, mainly inhabited by Arabs there is one main sight: The Church of the Annunciation which was built on that place, where archangel Gabriel is said to have spoken to Virgin Mary. Many churches have been built here, the current one is from the year 1969.

Therefore, the massive church has a very special architecture which is unusual if you know traditional religious places of Christianity. When coming into the church you directly see the stairs leading down to the grotto of annunciation. Additional staircases lead you up to the upper church used for devine services. The walls are decorated by paintings and artwork belonging to the time the church has been built.
