    Loved this village and the wonderful storytelling of our guide, Daniel. Very good communicator, educating us on 1st century life and Jesus. Very well done and I would recommend to those in Nazareth. This is not just for kids, great for adults too!

    Also known as Tel (Hill) Megiddo, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is an historically significant ancient location of artifacts & ruins from various cultures, dating back from the Neolithic Period (7th-6th Century BC), through the Kings of Israel, and abandoned under the times of the Persians. Portions of the Canaanite City Gate remain from the Late Bronze Age as the visitor enters onto the Megiddo site, along a pathway winding up through sparse ruins. At the Northern Observation Point, a view overlooking the famous Jezreel Valley reveals the former battlefield below, where major battles occurred in the 15th Century BCE under Egyptian Pharaoh Thutmose III, later Alexander the Great and more recently in World War I (1918), General Edmund Allenby, who successfully fought the Ottoman Turkish forces here. Napoleon observed at Megiddo that: "All the armies of the world could maneuver their forces on this vast plain". Yes; this is the location of the final "Biblical Battle of Armageddon" and has numerous historic references within the Jewish "Tanakh" & the Christian "Bible". A former trade route that linked Egypt with Mesopotamia, this strategic site overlooks the key pass through the Carmel Mountains. This formerly fortified city used chariots for protection and its horses were sheltered in two stable complexes, whose foundations are now outlined. Most intriguing was our exploration through the protected water system and its tunnel, built under the period of the Israelite Kings, within the former walls of Megiddo. A 10 minute film prior to your tour explains the history of Megiddo and its archeological excavations. A visit to Megiddo is awe-inspiring and should not be missed!

    This is a lovely spot smack in the middle of the historic center of Nazareth. The archaeological excavations from the 1st century are very interesting, but it's really the rooftop panoramic views that make this a special place. Very friendly staff too!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
