The uniquly named “Synagogue-Church”, in the middle of Nazareth’s old city market, is by local Christian tradition the very place where Jesus preached after his baptism that he is the Messiah the Biblical prophets spoke about (Luke 4:16-27).
The architecture of the building is more typical to the middle ages, but at its entrance is a pillar from early Roman period.
Since the 18th century the site is controlled by the Greek-Catholics.
