Fodor's Expert Review Milk Grotto

Bethlehem Religious Building/Site/Shrine Fodor's Choice

Legend has it that when Mary stopped here to nurse the baby Jesus, a drop of milk fell on the floor in this cavelike grotto and the walls turned white. The grotto and the church above are beautiful, especially just before sunset when the light catches the stained-glass windows.
