Here you find a Crusader... More

This church was beautiful and the acoustics inside were awesome...Our tour group sang "How Great Thou Art" and we truly felt the presence of the Lord in that place. It was a wonder experience.

As a Muslim it was such an honour to visit the birth place of the blessed Virgin mother. The grounds are beautiful, the Church serene and tranquil with the delightful singing of the congregation but it the Father and entry staff that made me feel so welcome I was proud to be amongst my Christian brothers and sisters. I prayed... More

Besides marking the possible birthplace of the Virgin Mary, and beyond being a beautiful church itself, the acoustics here are amazing. Our tour leader had us sit down and sing one verse of a familiar song. We were not singers and yet the sound was fabulous. Whoever designed and built this, sure knew what they were doing.

Inside the gate you will find the beautiful Crusader built Church of St. Anne. Plan to sit awhile and meditate or sing! The acoustics are fabulous! This is the perfect place to have s spiritual moment during your trip. Outside the Church are the Pools of Bethesda! You must visit these for their historical significance both Biblically and archaeologically. Again!... More
