“"Shepherds' Field - Beit Sahour is associated with the place where the angel Gabriel appeared to the shepherds and informed them of Jesus’ birth. The Shepherds’ Fields is located, in an area known in Arabic as Siyar el-Ghanam, meaning ‘sheep’s croft.’ On the site there are three underground caves and archeological ruins of an olive press, stables, and a Byzantine monastery, that was probably destroyed in 614AD by the Persians. In 1950, a modern Church designed by the Italian architect Antonio Barluzzi was built on the site. The Monastery aims to resemble shepherd’s tent with its shape."”
