  • Such a beautiful church! Located inside Ain karem neighborhood. The walk there is so dreamy! The view of mountains,olive trees, and old houses everywhere is immaculate! Be prepared to walk on a hill with lots of steps.
  • The church, which is located at the top of Ein Karem, has a stunning view of the surrounding area. The story surrounding the church is intriguing, as is the impressive mosaic on the front, and the exhibits are also noteworthy. Keep an eye on the opening hours.
  • Beautiful landmark in Ein Karem. Wonderful visit.
