I travelled with a tour to the Church of the Nativity, also Basilica of the Nativity located in Bethlehem (Palestine) in the West Bank. It is richly decorated inside nowadays and welcomes thousands of visitors a day.
Inside the Basilica, it contains the original mosaic floor from the 4th century.
The holy site known as the Nativity Grotto underneath the Basilica is thought to be the cave in which Jesus of Nazareth was born. The grotto is the oldest site continuously worshipped in Christianity. And the basilica is the oldest major church in the Holy Land.
More photos of my middle East trip will be posted gradually.
