Day 7: The Basilica of the Annunciation


The Basilica of the Annunciation dominates Nazareth's otherwise insignificant skyline. It is the Catholic site of where the Angel Gabriel visited Mary. The building is very impressive on the inside, but I found that my favorite part was the outside.


They had a display of dozens of murals from all over the world depicting the aforementioned event. Each took the style of its donating country. Here is the one from Ukraine.


Here are several other countries - you'll have to zoom in to see how gorgeous and unique they all are. While in this courtyard, we met the first American tourists I'd seen our whole trip. They were independent travelers from DC and what's more, they had a toddler with them, too! I had no idea anyone else was as crazy as I am.


Here is the inside of the Basilica of the Annunciation. Very impressive, as I said, and filled with more murals from around the world.
