Basilica of Nativity

Travelujah / Explore / Basilica of Nativity


Cradle of Christianity, the church is built on the very site where Christ was born. Constructed in a rectangular shape, measuring 53.9 meters in length and 26.2 meters in width - the present structure was constructed and reconstructed in the last millennia. In the front of the Basilica is a paved square. Further down, the cornice of Justinian can be seen above the entrance and arch of the Crusader entrance. Red stone, white marble and lead form the materials used, for the construction of this marvelous edifice.

Opening Hours: 0600 - 1800 hours
