What travellers are saying
- The story is, this is where the Angel Gabriel announced to Mary that she was with child. Modern church sits atop the site where this event happened. I liked the different artistic interpretations of the Virgin Mary from countries adorning the walls of the church. You walk to an underground grotto where a shrine is shown behind a metal barricade. Not as good as the other sites we saw.Written 27 May 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Amazing place, with great tour guide and explanations of how Nazareth was during Jesus’ time. It is a must visit. It has a lot to learn and an amazing visual to explore.

- If you like historical sites this is a good stop off before visiting a place like Nazareth. Interesting sine walks remain and a small interesting water system. Not much else to see... archeological digs werein progress while we were there which added another layer of interest. Maybe spend an hour at best here.Written 2 July 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- 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!Written 26 June 2022
- Nazareth and The Church of St. Joseph are "must-see" locations for any trip or pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Nazareth is the town of Jesus' youth and growing up and the Church of St. Joseph memorializes St. Joseph's role as foster-father in Jesus' life.
The Church itself is relatively simple adorned mainly with beautiful paintings depicting St. Joseph and the Child Jesus.
The Church is built over ancient remains and ruins which can be viewed by descending into the lower level.
On the other (south) end of the building under the Basilica of the Annunciation is the grotto where the Blessed Virgin's home was located and which can be viewed by visitors.Written 2 May 2020
- Good views of Mt. Tabor. A backpacking trail heads out to the Galilee from here. Seems quite a way away from Nazareth and a long way to go for the conclusion to the story of the Rejection of Christ.Written 23 June 2022
- There are beautiful coloured wall painting on the inside of the church that are nice to see. The church doesn't look much from the outside but it is interesting to see, it has more character than the catholic basilica of the annunciation a few mins walk away as that is a much newer church.Written 20 March 2022
- It is a church built on the spot where Jesus, with his 3rd appearance to the disciples, roasted fish on the beach, and where Peter received confirmation of his calling. There is a statue in the garden where it is depicted: “Let my sheep feed”. The church is also called Church of the Primacy of St. Peter. The flat stone in front of the altar is the “table of Christ” = Mensa Christi. The 12 heart-shaped flat stones outside commemorate the 12 apostles. I light a candle here; then pick up some pebbles from the sea and could walk into and feel the waters of the Sea of Galilee.Written 19 August 2019
- 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.Written 2 February 2020
- 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.Written 8 March 2020
- 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.Written 9 October 2017
- 12 noon and place totally deserted. Even the stall sellers were missing. Lots of btickabrack and domestic ware. 15 minutes walk and that's it. However if you like coffee ☕ there is fantastic roastery half way through, finest ground Turkish style coffee with cardamom. Price 10 🔟 shekels for 250 grams.Written 18 October 2018
- The place is nice, moving. However, it could be cleaner. Pity that it is not better kept by the municipality.Written 13 March 2022
- 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.Written 28 January 2022
- 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!Written 12 January 2020
