  • The Basilica is built in the site where the Blessed Virgin Mary received the annunciation of the “incarnation of the word” by Gabriel. The site has been a pilgrimage destination since earliest times and remains an important stop for Holy Land pilgrims today.

  • This is the site where angry Jewish worshippers drove Jesus away from the Synagogue, attempted to throw him of the cliffs, and he disappeared before their eyes "in the midst of them".

  • According to tradition, Cana of the Galilee is where Jesus performed the miracle of the wine, when he went to a wedding of a poor couple and turned water into wine.

  • Mount Tabor rises 575 meters above sea level in the eastern edge of the Jezreel Valley, and is the traditional site of the Transfiguration of Jesus.
