Being a place associated with three religions, a number of interesting sites are scattered around Bethlehem. The Basilica of Nativity, one of the oldest churches in the world situated in Manger Square, is the focal point for any visit. Inside the church is the Grotto of Nativity where Mary gave birth to Christ. Other sites in and around Bethlehem include the St. Catherine’s Church, the Milk Grotto, Rachel’s Tomb (Masjid Bilal), Shepherds’ Field, David’s Wells, Solomon’s Pools, Saint Theodosius Convent, Saint Sabas’ Convent, Herodium, Wadi Kareitoum, Mar Elias Monastery, and Beit Jala. You may also go for daylong excursions to Jerusalem and Hebron, two of the oldest cities in the world. Besides sightseeing, you must take some time off to visit the local markets. Bethlehem has an uninterrupted tradition of handicraft making and missing the opportunity for shopping these exclusive products would not be a good idea.
