Nazareth is an ancient city located in northern Israel, and is considered holy for both Christians and Muslims.
According to Christian belief, it was in Nazareth that the angel Gabriel appeared to the mother of Jesus and announced that she would bear the Son of God. The Holy family returned to Nazareth after Jesus's birth in Bethlehem and after they escaped to Egypt.
A visit to the Church of Annunciation in Nazareth is considered to be one of the attractions in Nazareth no one should miss, as it stands over the place believed to be the site where the angel Gabriel appeared to Mary.
In Nazareth, you can find many ancient churches and mosques. If you want something other than a religious site, we warmly recommend a visit to the Al Arz Tahini plant to see for yourself the process of producing tahini, one of the most popular foods in Middle Eastern cuisine. The tour is not only interesting, but also tasty, as you get to taste the tahini made at the plant. If you call yourself a 'foodie', a visit to the Al Arz Tahini factory is one of the attractions in Nazareth you can't miss!
