Create an itinerary including Church Of Annunciation
Believed by many to stand over the childhood home of the Virgin Mary, Church Of Annunciation represents a two-storey contemporary house of worship completed in 1969. Make your way to the ornately decorated lower level, allegedly the spot where angel Gabriel told Mary she would give birth to the Son of God. The majestic domed ceiling suggests the appearance of an inverted lily, a nod to the Semitic translation of Nazareth--flower.

  • One of the most famous and touristic place in Nazareth. An entrance is free but be careful and wear clothes that cover your shoulders and knees at least. You can find a gallery with frescoes from different countries. Also basilica is open for visiting. Unfortunately the Museum on the territory was closed. Good for visit.
  • Beautiful, amazing, spiritual and peaceful place! As a Catholic being able to visit the place where The annunciation happened to the Virgin Mary was a simply wonderful and religious experience. The church is beautiful, on the exterior you can see images of the Virgin Mary for all different countries, worth to enjoy each one of them.
