Ginnie tower

 

This week I will show some pictures of Nazareth. Most of you will think of a village, but it is now the third largest Palestinian dominated city in Israel.

 

This is the bell/clock tower of the Greek Orthodox church, where it is said that the angel appeared to Maria, announcing that she will have a baby and should call him Jesus. We also visited the Basilica of the Annunciation, nearly three kilometers from this place. The RC church believe that their spot is the correct one, where the anouncement was made. At least we passed through a very interesting market on the way from the one announcement spot, to the other.

 

Oh, and it was neither 05:00, nor 17:00 when this picture was taken. More like 09:45.

Unusual - I've never seen an "exposed" bell tower like this - usually they have brick around them, don't they? I like that they painted decorations on it.
