The Church of the Nativity, located in the heart of Bethlehem, is the most sacred site in the Christian faith, the birthplace of Jesus Christ, marked by the Church of the Nativity. This, of course, is no ordinary church; the entryway is extremely small, while inside, visitors are exposed to a vast nave and beautiful mosaics and artwork. The Nativity Church Bethlehem is not only the oldest church in Israel, but it is one of the oldest continuously operating churches in the world.
