But thanks in particular to the work carried out at the level of the Church of the Nativity, experts believe that this place is no longer in danger.

“The Committee praised the quality of the work carried out on the Church of the Nativity, in particular the restoration of the roof, the exterior facades, the wall mosaics and the doors of the basilica. It also welcomed the abandonment of the Place de la Crèche tunnel project and the adoption of a conservation management plan for the site. "
