Nazareth - Church of the Annunciation

 

In Nazareth, the old Franciscan church built in 1730, was pulled down in 1955 to make way for a new one, Israel' largest sacred building in recent decades. This fifth church, consecrated on March 23, 1969 by Cardinal Garrone, is the most important modern church building in Israel.
