Christian Religious Sites in Israel
It is believed that Israel and its surroundings are the lands where Jesus was born, lived and eventually died; making the area an important Christian pilgrimage site. For example, the Basilica of the Annunciation marks the location where Mary was told she’d bear Jesus as her child. Another example is the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which is perhaps the most important Christian religious site in the country. It has also been a popular pilgrimage site since about the fourth century. In this video, WatchMojo.com takes a look at Israel’s most important Christian pilgrimage sites.
