Nazareth - Church of the Annunciation

 

 

The large Basilica of the Assumption, built in 1969, overlooks the Nazareth landscape. According to Catholics, the basilica marks the site of Mary's house and the Annunciation (when the angel Gabriel announced to Mary that she would bear the Savior). Inside are remains of earlier structures, including the Grotto of the Annunciation, mosaics and sculptures.
