Church of Nativity in Bethlehem, Palestine is newest UNESCO World Heritage Site

July 2, 2012

Birthplace of Jesus: Church of the Nativity and the Pilgrimage Route in Bethlehem, Palestine is the latest addition to the list of World Heritage sites in danger by UNESCO World Heritage.

The inscribed property is situated 10km south of Jerusalem on the site identified by Christian tradition as the birthplace of Jesus since the 2nd century. A church was first completed there in 339 A.D. and the edifice that replaced it after a fire in the 6th century retains elaborate floor mosaics from the original edifice. The site also includes Latin, Greek Orthodox, Franciscan and Armenian convents and churches, as well as bell towers, terraced gardens and a pilgrimage route.
