The city of Nazareth located in the lower Galilee in Northern Israel has numerous attractions and religious sites. It is an important area for Christian pilgrims. Instead of viewing sites during the day, It's also a treat to see them illuminated at night.
Nazareth is a diverse cultural delight of old intermingled with new. Two of the main sites to see are the Salesian Church and the Basilica of The Annunciation.
The Salesian Church, built in 1923, with the help of donations from a French scholar, stands on the highest ridge on the west side of the city.
The Basilica of the Annunciation, Nazareth, Israel.
The Basilica is located on the site that is said to be where Mary's house was located and where the angel Gabriel appeared and delivered the message that Mary would give birth to the son of God.
If you travel down into the centre of Nazareth, you pass other illuminated churches.
