Basilica of the Annunciation, Nazareth
The site of the Basilica in Nazareth is where tradition has it that the Annunciation took place. On that day, the Angel Gabriel visited the Virgin Mary and announced that she would carry the Son of God. This basilica commemorating this key episode in the Bible was built in the 20th century. In the church pilgrims can discover a part of the house of Mary dug into the rocks. A little chapel can be found in the interior where pilgrims can gather.
