    The church is beautuful. The pictures of Maria done by different countries are very interesting. I enjoyed especially the American one.

    We visited this site as part of a tour group and spent a bit over an hour touring. We were given one of their guides who walked us through the property and explained what the various actors were doing. It was interesting to see the building and farming methods used anciently; as far as I'm aware everything was historic as it would have been in the time that Jesus lived there. The visit was a neat opportunity to glimpse what the past might have looked like.

    This area is definitely worth a visit. It is a bit hilly so if you have difficulty walking, it could be an issue as there is no other way to see the area. The ruins are well marked and interesting to explore. There is a restaurant on the premises as well as vending machines for drinks. It was very hot when I was there and wish I had thought to carry a bottle of water with me as once you get away from the entrance is there are no restrooms or water fountains. There is also very little shade so sun screen and a hat would be a good idea.

    Really beautiful small-ish church with a flow of water, well-protected, that has been there for 2,000 years! Definitely a must-do on every Holy Land tour.

    The Centre International Marie de Nazareth was first opened in 2011 by Leaders of Church Authority, as an instrument of Marian devotion as well as a Chapel of Unity for fostering growth in relationship with the Roman Catholic Church. Until 2020 it was administrated by Mixed Lay, Married and Single Religious institute of Consecreated Life. Since then the Franciscan Custody has made use of the Kitchen and Refectory and a Lay group of Missionaries Canno Nova, have made their home in the apartments and Offices. Canno Nova works as the Christian Media Center for the Bascilia of the Most Holy Annunciation.

    Having arrived July 8, 2021, I was asked mantain the flowering gardens on each of the five levels of the Center. I had the task of catching up with main work of repairing the damage done by two years of neglect, with no budget, only good will to help. I can say the the Center is functioning and could be brought on line with the the help of God!

    Worth a short visit since it is only a very short walk from the big Annunciation Church. It only takes a few minutes to see. There is a nice church and then you go downstairs to view the location which might have been the home of the Holy Family and/or Joseph's carpentry workshop. They have kept the downstairs rock-hewn humble.

    I love archeology because things just keep turning up that make us reevaluate historical opinions. This ancient bath house makes us rethink so many preconceived notions we have about the town. If it was in fact, in use at the time of Jesus or before, Nazareth would have had to have been a larger city than we have imagined since there would have had to have been a population to support a facility of this type.

    Like Mary's Well, this site enables you to easily imagine Nazareth at the time of Christ. Interesting AND humbling to be there. Recommended for all biblically-inclined tourists.

    I recommend visiting Mount Precipice in the outskirts of Nazareth. Christians believe that Jesus jumped from here when he fled from those who chased him. A panoramic view of the Jezreel Valley spreads out from the mountain, in all directions. Davoria, Mount Tabor, Afula, Tel Adashim... This morning I was there at sunrise and from there I continued to Old Nazareth to wander the alleys, but that's another story...

    The church above it was closed and a women tried to chase us away but didn’t speak any English. Luckily we saw a small sign in Russian before we exited the premises and entered the caves. Entry fee is donation based.

    Set right on the Banks of the Sea of Galilee, not to be missed on any pilgrimage. Inside the Chruch, under the Altar is a beautiful mosaic of the loaves and fishes

    My spouse and I spent a lovely afternoon with our great host Basem. Our gracious host offered us coffee and proceeded to enthusiastically explained about the long history of clay and ceramics while weaving in his family’s history.
    After the introduction, we were led to a workshop with many interesting machines and Basem told us the story of each and demonstrated the techniques. We also got a thorough explanation of how clay is made.
    Then came the third stage and we got to experiment with the clay and create our souvenirs.
    We again got pampered with wonderful hospitality: tea and baflut.
    We also bought some special pottery for our plants.
    Thank you, we will come again.

    But it was expected as Nazareth receives every year many much more tourists than Akko (Acre).
    So the shops in this market are somehow less interesting than there. Not without reminding the Jerusalem Old City's market.
    Still, for those who like the colorful ambiance of these streets, the hustle bustle of the crowd and the constant bargaining game, then this is the place to be in Nazareth.

    The Salesian Church of Jesus the Adolescent is a Catholic church located on a ridge from which an impressive view of the city of Nazareth. It is one of Nazareth's largest and most magnificent churches and was designed by French architect Lucia Gauthier. Its construction began in 1906 but was discontinued during WWI, and ended only in 1920. The church was built in the Neo-Gothic style, and adjacent to it is the Don Bosco Vocational School, which previously (since 1902) served as an orphanage. There are many concerts in the church, and last Friday we sat in the church listening to "Gloria" by Vivaldi. It was great!
