Nazareth - Grotto of the Angel
Nazareth is one of the most important Christian holy sites attracting pilgrims from all over the world. It was here that Jesus spent most of his life and it was here that the Miracle of the Annunciation took place in the Grotto of the Virgin: This site is believed to be the place where the Angel announced to the Virgin Mary that she was to become a mother. The altar bears the inscription: “Verbum caro hic factum est – Here the Word was made flesh”. The copper baldachin over the grotto is of Belgian workmanship.
