About Nazareth:

Famous for being the childhood home of Jesus, Nazareth today is no longer a small town as it was in the time of Jesus; it is a bustling city of about 75,00 people, about 1/3 Christian and 2/3 Muslim.  Among those sites most significant for Catholic pilgrims would be:

Basilica of the Annunciation

Mary’s Well (the Church of Saint Gabriel)

Mary of Nazareth International Center

Mensa Christi Church ( where Jesus dined with His disciples after His resurrection)

Saint Joseph’s Church

The Old Synagogue Church (also called the Greek Catholic Church)
