Sanctuary Bethlehem, Bethlehem

4.7
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. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Bethlehem holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Sanctuary Bethlehem and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Beautiful the restoration of mosaics made by the Italians. You Have to arm yourself with patience to see the place of the nativity because there is always the row

  • I Believe that the Sanctuary of Belen is considered the whole of the Basilica of the Nativity, the Church of Santa Catalina, the Manger or grotto under the Basilica, the Crib Square and the Grotto of the Milk.... A set of icons of Christianity, the place where Jesus was born. All well preserved and very visited by pilgrims and tourists from all over the world. You can get there in tours from Jerusalem and other cities. The simplest, easiest and cheapest is to arrive on the 231 public bus leaving the bus terminal in front of the Damascus Gate of Jerusalem. There are No border problems for tourists with your country's passport and Israel Visa card. Emotional and compelling Visit for Christians around the world in the Holy Land
