Saint Joseph church, located next to the church of Annunciation in Nazareth, is by local tradition built over the home of Joseph, (step-) father of Jesus. Another tradition holds this was his carpentry, although there are no archaeological remains to clearly suggest so.
The finds the site suggest the area was used for storage of grains in the first century CE. The current Neo-Romanesque church was built in 1914, and is walking distance from the old city market.
