Nazareth is an ancient city well known for its cultural and religious descent. It was founded around 9000 years ago and have witnessed the rise of the modern human era. Explore its mysteries and history.
Nazareth is beautiful. This city has always been exceptional, and not like other Arabian Christian cities of the Holy Land, maybe because it is away from big troubles and scandals. Maybe because in this city they always lived peacefully. Perhaps because its streets are full of the smell of roasted coffee beans, and traditional cuisine and hospitality do not leave room for sadness. Howbeit, it is recommended to walk the streets of Nazareth on foot and weekdays. On weekends it is so crowded that you will never love this experience. An exception to this rule can only be a festival of Santa Clauses for Christmas. This walk starts in the main square of the city, goes up to the Basilica of Annunciation - the most prominent Christian church in the Middle East, continues to the city market, enters the synagogue church, and introduces us to Padre Pio and Saint Charbel from Lebanon. The path passes through craft shops and old mansions to the holy caves of the Greek Orthodox Church, passes through the Russian courtyard, and the most mysterious bottle trees leads us to the church of the archangel Gabriel and ends in the most delicious and welcoming restaurant in the city.
We decided to go to Nazareth for Christmas. But very quickly, we realized that it is possible and necessary to come to Nazareth without any particular reason. It is a very self-sufficient, authentic, traditional, and modern city with a good spirit, smiling people, and delicious food. We took a walk from Maria’s well through the streets of the old town to the colorful bazaar, the white mosque, the synagogue church, the Church of the Annunciation and the Church of the House of Joseph, the Museum of cave-dwelled Nazareth, Fahome Coffee Shop, Alreda Restaurant, and Tishreen Restaurant. It was a wonderful trip!
Every time you travel Galilee and Nazareth, do not forget to end the day by watching the sunset on Mount Precipice. Convenient hiking trails, the most beautiful lookout on the Armageddon Valley, a stunning overlook on Mount Tavor and the sunset over the Carmel Ridge inspire the soul, calm the mind and open the heart.
