This Catholic Church is the church that is broadcast around the world at Christmas where songs about the birth of Christ are sung. It is quiet, meditative and serene. Well worth a visit.

This is a Catholic church which is next to the Church of the Nativity. It was dedicated to Saint Catherine of Alexandria in the 1300s. There are beautiful stain glass windows. The Stations of the Cross are uniquely colorful. In the courtyard there is a statue of St. Jerome who translated the Bible into the common language during his life. Keep in mind that this church is located in the West Bank in the Palestinian territories. If traveling there, you should have your passport with you, just in case.

The church is a part of the church of Nativity so it's worth seeing it. This is Catholic church, that is one of the three religions that takes care of this place.

This church is adjacent to the Church of the Nativity. The church itself was closed when we visited, but the cloister area is very peaceful and beautiful.
