Oct 07, 2017: The Shepherds' Field Chapel is the name given to a religious building of the Catholic church that is in the area of Beit Sahur southeast of Bethlehem in the West Bank in Palestine. The chapel marks the place where, according to Catholic tradition, the angels first announced the birth of Christ.

 

 

 

 

 

Shepherds' Field Chapel is located in the West Bank Shepherds' Field.

It is a chapel built by the Franciscans and that is very close but separated from other structure belonging to the Greek Orthodox Church. Its history dates back to the fifth century when the first sanctuary was built. The present chapel was built near the ruins of an ancient monastery in 1953 with the design of architect A. Barluzzi and decorated with images of the annunciation to the shepherds and childhood of Jesus.
