This beautiful ancient church is the possible site of the birth of the Virgin Mary. The church has amazing acoustics so bring your voice and a team of good singers or just rest and relax to other tourists singing hymns in this wonderful serene setting.

The fun part about this church is the acoustics. My husband found a good spot and sang a song called, Let Us Adore, which was very worshipful. It is a beautiful building, too.
