"Downstairs has been kept rock-hewn and humble"

Worth a short visit since it is only a very short walk from the big Annunciation Church. It only takes a few minutes to see. There is a nice church and then you go downstairs to view the location...
"Only if you're passing by and have tine"

Not really special, not that beautiful and yet still interesting as are all the churches. It might be also the opportunity for a short break.
"Nothing special"

It's an average church, quite modern. Downstairs are some old rocks that are supposed to be where Joseph's workshop was. It is nothing special
