The “Church of the Visitation” in Ein Karem commemorates by Catholic tradition the place where Mary visited Elizabeth and blessed her (Luke 1), and the place where John the Baptist as an infant was hidden (an event documented in the Protevangelium of James ).
The remarkable church building was designed by Italian architect Antonio Barluzzi , and completed in 1955.
