The Church of the Annunciation, Nazareth

4.5
Believed by many to stand over the childhood home of the Virgin Mary, The Church of the 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.
