Nazareth, Chapel of St. Joseph, Basilica of the Annunciation
The Basilica of the Annunciation in Nazareth is a 2 story building, where the angel Gabriel told Mary that she would give birth to the son of God. You may remember from Part 3, the Greek Orthodox believe this happened closer to Mary's well. A church was first made on today's Basilica site in the Crusader-era, and then rebuilt in the Byzantine-era. The structure today was last rebuilt in 1969.
Under the Basilica is a lower church, thought to be at the site where exists the remains of Mary's childhood home. It was raining this entire day as you'll see in the photos.
