Sanctuary Bethlehem, Bethlehem

4.8
Visit Sanctuary Bethlehem to experience Biblical history. Walk the complex where Jesus Christ's birth took place, in an area that's now indoors. The Byzantine-era architecture mixes across centuries with different kings and queens. Mosaics covering the walls show three images: life of Jesus Christ, local synods and councils, and angels hovering above them all. See the series of historical artifacts of bronze and silver within the church that date back to medieval times. Because the area is a popular stop for tourists, keep your eyes on your possessions. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Bethlehem holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Sanctuary Bethlehem and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Location in the basement of the Church of the Nativity was Christ born stars are embedded in its place. I also tried put the hands gently. There were places of the crib. Not touch any Holy power people narrow in the cave, could hardly want to leave to take a picture it's hard. Group choir hymn in English with face to face in a cave. Incidentally is the wood of the Manger now as a holy relic in the Cathedral of Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome.

  • In addition to the star of Bethlehem in this temple is interesting and the miraculous icon of our Lady happy. Very not canonical storyline in iconography. Such, anyway, are not met.

  • The sanctuary of Bethlehem is the birthplace of Jesus. Much peace, high energy, is contagious. One of the best places in the spent the Holy land. Recommended putting your hands on the ground where Jesus was born.

Where to stay in Bethlehem

The main tourist traffic in Bethlehem consists of tour groups arriving from Jerusalem, getting a hectic tour of the town, and leaving. But Bethlehem's tangled streets house a number of accommodations worth checking out if you want to extend your stay beyond a brief look around. Located here, there, and everywhere, the hotels in town blend in with the rest of the buildings, so you should certainly plan ahead to make sure you know exactly where yours is. A couple of luxury choices have ornamental interiors, fine-dining restaurants, and pools, while standard hotels and guesthouses abound, along with a few backpacker hostels.
