Nazareth

Nazareth was a tiny village in the middle of the lower Galilee some 2000 years ago, and yet being the hometown of Jesus of Nazaeth, since the 4th century the city is a focal point of Christian pilgrimage, and to this day thousands of Christian pilgrims visit the city on daily basis.

Its main Christian attractions are the  Church of Annunciation  and the  S. Joseph Church ; the  Synagogue church  ; the S. Gabriel church  at the spring, and the spring building (“Mary’s well”).

South of the city is “Mount of Precipice” identified as the site where the people of Nazareth wanted to throw Jesus to his death. This led to his move from Nazareth to Capernaum  .

Nazareth

In the New Testament, the town is described as the childhood home of Jesus, and as such is a center of Christian pilgrimage, with many shrines commemorating biblical events. One view holds that “Nazareth” is derived from one of the Hebrew words for ‘branch’, namely ne·ṣer, נֵ֫צֶר, and alludes to the prophetic, messianic words in Book of Isaiah 11:1, ‘from (Jesse’s) roots a Branch ( netzer) will bear fruit’.

Book a Private Tour to Nazareth

Nazareth is in the lower Galilee. It is about 2 hours drive from Tel-Aviv, and takes about 1-2 hours to explore.

Since I only offer full day tours, I recommend to contact me for a proposal of a full day tour of Galilee, that will also include Nazareth.
