The top of the site has a small, but not very old chapel. But the real attraction is just a bit down the hill under it. The area is full of limestone caves. It is a good example of where shepherds would shelter a flock...More

There is a very nice church  and grounds on the spot where supposedly the shepards first heard of Christ's birth. There is a round area in the church for easy visiting of the various alters and murals - all very nicely done. Benches along the...More

The chapel is pretty cool and the grounds afford some nice views into the Israeli settlement to the north

There is little to see here. the church is part of an architectural series by an Italian architect who did many churches in Jerusalem and surrounding New Testament sites.

Visited the place with fellow pilgrims and our priest companion celebrated mass with us at the Chapel 2. The place was serene and I felt the angels are still there, blessing the place and the people who come and visit.

I have traveled here often. It is a church in the Shepherd's Fields. Beautiful building with some amazing paintings depicting the life of Jesus Christ. Under the main building, there is a cave. Perhaps where the shepherds kept their sheep. It is a short walk...More

this is a great place to sit back and reflect. if you are in Bethlehem you are taking in a lot of history and bringing the Bible to life. This is a great place to overlook the fields and reflect on everything you have encountered.

As much as I was disappointed in my experience at the Church of the Nativity, I was equally surprised by how much I loved Shepherd's Field. This was far more spiritually moving and was, literally, a breath of fresh air, as there were constant breezes...More
