Said to be the birthplace of the Virgin Mary , we were as a group made to sing a church hymn . Acoustics inside were echoing in a beautiful manner. It was a memorable experience and we have it on video.

This is a lovely quiet church with a beautiful garden, a riot of rich colour. Our son thought it was a special place. It also had clean toilets!

Our tour group stepped in St Anne’s after visiting the Pool of Bethesda. This is a beautiful church but to hear the singing of a unrehearsed and amateur group sound so amazing. These two sites are well worth the time and effort to visit together.
