Sanctuary Bethlehem, Bethlehem

(65+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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. Put Sanctuary Bethlehem into our Bethlehem itinerary planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Bethlehem.
