Route & Duration
The Jesus Trail
The Jesus Trail is a 65-kilometer (40-mile) hiking and pilgrimage trail in Israel's Galilee area that parallels Jesus' possible path, linking several locations from his life and career. The route begins in Nazareth and continues through Sepphoris, Cana (Kafr Kanna), the Horns of Hattin, Mount Arbel Cliffs, the Sea of Galilee, Capernaum, Tabgha, and the Mount of Beatitudes. Tiberias, the Jordan River, Mount Tabor, and Mount Precipice are all on the way back.
Centre International Marie de Nazareth
The serene rooftop gardens, cultivated with flora mentioned in the Bible, provide 360-degree views, while remains dating back to the First Temple era may be seen in the basement. A four-room multimedia exhibition in 14 languages depicts biblical highlights (from Creation to the Resurrection), with a focus on Mary and Jesus' lives.
St. Joseph's Church
St. Joseph's Church is a Franciscan Roman Catholic church in Nazareth, Israel. It was constructed in 1914 on top of the ruins of much earlier structures. It is near to the Annunciation Church. The Romanesque Revival style was used to construct it. The church was built on the site of the Church of Nutrition, which was mentioned by the pilgrim Arculfe in "De locis sanctis" (II, 26) around 670, then a crusader church of the Kingdom of Jerusalem, the vestiges of which can be found under the crypt, and a Franciscan church built in the 17th century.
Holy Caves of Nazareth
The holy caves are at the center of ancient Nazareth, built over centuries by Jews and early Christians trying to escape Roman persecution. Many experts believe that Nazareth never existed at the time of Jesus due to a lack of findings. The caves are the gateway to the underground city, yet to be excavated. Enjoy a free guided tour in the portions of the caves that are accessible.
Where Mary's Well (Arabic: Ain il- adhr or "The spring of the Virgin Mary") is said to be located, according to Catholic belief, Angel Gabriel appeared to Mary, mother of Jesus, and declared that she would bear the Son of God, an event known as the Annunciation. The well, located right below the Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation in modern-day Nazareth, was built over an underground spring that functioned as a local watering place for Palestinian people for generations.
