The Annunciation – at home

In Nazareth we also visited the Basilica of the Annunciation built over the reputed site of Mary’s home, where the Western tradition feels that the Annunciation took place.


surrounded by mosaics of Mary for many different countries – a few of which I coped with.

From Scotland.

From Australia.

Inside the Basilica…

…we find Mary’s House… 



and some nice stained glass.


 (This sculpture looks less The Annunciation, and more ‘Domestic Violence !)

    Again, great contrasts between the outer and inner aspects of this building through the use of vast spaces compared to the wonderful simplicity of Mary’s House. I certainly agree with the two statues out the front, they could put some people off!
