Visit Nazareth and the Nazareth Village
Nazareth is the largest city in the Northern District of Israel and is known as the Arab capital; it was also the childhood home of Yeshua (Jesus). According to the Gospel of Luke, Nazareth was also the home town of Mary and the site of the Annunciation.
Tourists today who visit Nazareth can stop off at the Church of the Annunciation before taking a trip back in time by spending a few hours at the Nazareth Village. Situated on a hillside in Nazareth, staff at the centre guide visitors in 1st century costumes through the daily life and activities of village life in the time of Yeshua. Farmers and villages go about their daily tasks and a 1st century meal is provided for all to enjoy.
The Nazareth village is an interactive activity that can be enjoyed by all age groups however, due to uneven walk ways and slight hillside climbs it may not be suitable for all. Please ask for details.
