“the nativity”

Sanctuary Bethlehem
Ranked #3 of 35 things to do in Bethlehem
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 April 2018

this is inside the church of the nativity. it's beautiful inside. to have mass/service there would be so unique and humbling. remember it's still a house of worship, so remember to be respectful and mindful of the sanctuary. i loved being here.

An important place for every believing Christian in the world. You have to wait in a long queue and come in very early in the morning.

This is truly a holy place that leaves you in awe. I would recommend this blessed Sanctuary to go and maybe say your rosary.

Our Tour Guide brought us to the other side of the Church of the Nativity, and then we ended here. It was beautiful to see and very spiritual!

This was my third time to visit the location. It is better to have a tour guide at this location!

The church is under renovation, the walls are covered for restoration.
Here it is the only icon where Virgin Mary is smiling. It is the symbol of happy maternity.
