While you are visiting the Basilic of the Annunciation, you can also visit this small and humble church, where you can find old ruins of an ancient church of the Crusades.

About 200 m from Church of Annunciation, is this church from around 100 years old. It`s a worship place because it`s supposed that in the lower level is the house of Joseph.

It's really nice to see all the tunnels under the church. I hope they will make a tour under ground. A nice small church just at the same area as the church of the announcement.
