A very modern church on the grounds where Mary found out she was to have the child of God. There are several depictions of Mary provided by countries from around the world.

Absolutely beautiful church over the site where the angel Gabriel visited Mary to tell her she would be the mother of Jesus. Nazareth is overcrowded and traffic was pretty terrible but if you are visiting the area, this is a must see.
