By Lesley Lanir     Dec 23, 2012 in Travel
Nazareth - 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.

Next to the church is a high school, named after Don Bosco, the founder of the Salesian order. The school was originally an orphanage established in 1902.
