Adjacent to the Basilic of the Annunciation, the St. Joseph Church must be visited as an important complement for the trip to this old city.

Said to be where Joseph had his carpentry shop, the newer church is quite simple and lovely, certainly smaller than the Church of Annunciation. Built above older churches that once stood there, the visit to the grotto area is interesting and has some lovely stain...More

Church is quite plain and nothing special. The grotto is said to the ruins of Joseph's house, although there really is little supporting evidence. A quick peek after the visit of the neighboring Basilica of the Annunciation is probably okay; a special visit - not...More

Nice little church right next to the Church of the Annunciation. Do not miss the grotto, said to be the ruins of Joseph’s house. Interesting.

Visited this church and it was interesting to see the lower level and places where St. Joseph apparently worked.

Although not as magnificent as the Basilica of the Assumption, the Church of St Joseph is worth a visit on its own. As St Joseph lived so much in the shadow of Mary and Jesus, so the Church of St Joseph is so much in...More

The spotlight at this site is on Mary, so it is fitting that the st Joseph Church play a supporting role just as Joseph did in real life. The church is located a short walk through a small garden from the Church of the Annunciation....More
