Hebrew name:Natzrat; Natzrut=Christianity

Basilica of the Annunciation, the largest church of the city was built above the legendary cave where the Archangel Gabriel told Mary about her motherhood.

This is the fifth temple built on this very spot: the first one was built in 356 for the mother of Caesar Constantinus, and became the first imposing shrine of Christianity.

Later the byzantine built churches here, followed by the Christians, then the Franciscans. Eventually, it was their church which was then demolished in 1955 in order for the present Basilica of the Annunciation to be built in 1969
