Stop At: Church of the Nativity, Manger Square .15 minutes walking from bus 231, Bethlehem Palestinian Territories

Nativity Church, 4th Century Church in the place where Jesus has born, the oldest complete church in the Christian, built over the cave venerated as Christ’s birthplace, and dedicated in AD 339,Persians spared the Church of the Nativity when they saw a mosaic on an interior wall depicting the Three Wise Men in Persian dress.Today’s Church of the Nativity is cool and dark, its interior bare with no pews. Wall mosaics from the 12th century — depicting saints, angels and Church councils — have had their original sheen restored.
The restorers even uncovered a 2-metre mosaic of an angel that had been lost for centuries.
Trapdoors in the floor allow glimpses of the mosaic floor of Constantine’s basilica. The red limestone pillars were quarried locally. Many are adorned with Crusader paintings of saints.
After this point you continue with the Guide to explore that many other Sites that you will see:
Church of the Shepherd’s Field

Banksy Art – Wall of Bethlehem
