Didn't have time to go inside this Church, one has a lot of things to do around it. Many restaurants and shops to visit, then I had to go to see Christmas Parade. Very busy place!

If you are an Orthodoxe it will be your first stop visiting Nazareth. And you will surely remember the first time when your Grandpa entered you in a Church. Impressive date with the child you used to be.

The iconography is stunning, just as you would expect in a Greek Orthodox church. Don't miss the small cave at the back which is the spring source for Mary's well.

Nobody knows, because they don't advert their telephone number. If you don't mind visiting a Catholic Mass, visit Basilica of the Annunciation site, they always answer the phone. God Bless.
