Said to be built over the home of John the Baptist's parents, the Church of the Visitation stands high up on the hillside of Ein Kerem in Jerusalem. From here there is a wonderful view of the valley and the surrounding wooded hills.
This modern Franciscan church (dating from 1955), designed by the Italian architect Antonio Barluzzi, was built to commemorate the meeting of Mary with her cousin Elizabeth (Luke 1:39-56). To get to the church, walk up the hill from the Virgin's Fountain in the lower village. From the top you will have a fine view of Ein Kerem. It holds Italianate frescoes and beautiful mosaic floors. The gift shop offers rosaries, postcards, and recordings of liturgical music by local monastery choirs.
