The Church of the Annunciation, Nazareth
(4.4/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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. Our Nazareth itinerary planner makes visiting The Church of the Annunciation and other Nazareth attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • In Nazareth, we were the second time. The first time we were in the Orthodox Church of the Annunciation, built over the well, where the Virgin took water. This year we visited the Catholic Cathedral of the Annunciation, built over the House of Joseph the Carpenter. The Church is completely different, each is interesting in its own way. Us Orthodox closer. The old part of Nazareth is very small, and I advise you to live in Nazareth Ilit, the quiet and peaceful.

  • The site leads the Pilgrim to strong emotion, if we consider the cave in which Mary received the Angel and the willingness to serve the Father and mankind.

  • מקום מקסים נקי ומסביר פנים. מלאה במבקרים גם מהארץ וגם מחוץ לארץ. מקום גדול ויפה מבחינת הבניה והארכיטקטורה זה דבר מדהים ביופיו ובגודלו. רצוי היה שיהיה במקום גם מדריך בעברית כי רוב ההסבר היה בשפות זרות.

  • Beautiful Greek church
  • The "Saint Gabriel" church is located over part of the origin of the main spring of Nazareth. By local tradition near the site the angel appeared to Mary.
  • According to Eastern Orthodox believe the well under the church (can been seen in the back) is the spot of the annunciation of Gabriel to Mary that she would conceive and become the mother of Jesus, the Son of God, marking his Incarnation. Luke 1:27-37
