This church, one of the oldest in the world, was built by Constantine the Great in the fourth century, rebuilt using much of the original materials by Justinian in the sixth century, and rebuilt again incorporating much of the originals by the Crusaders in the 12th century. It marks the traditional spot where Jesus Christ was born, in a cave beneath the church. For Christians it is a moving place of pilgrimage. For others it is worth seeing for its antiquity and beauty. Crowds can be very large, and the wait to enter the cave of the Nativity itself can be long. The pilgrim won't care. The tourist may duck out early. Either way, this is certainly a highlight of any trip to the Holy Land.

Beautiful site

The site was beautiful altogether! The priests were really nice and provided explanations for everything that we asked. It was full of tourists singing their Christian songs and provided a plus of spirituality.
