Gift & Specialty Shop · Hidden Gem · Shopping
The Galilee Mill is one of the gems of the ancient city of Nazareth. It is a family run business that has been handed down through three generations during over 100 years of operation. This beautifully ancient looking building, which is owned and run by brothers Jarjoura and Tony Kanaza, has a grand history, from its Ottoman rule, to its ownership the by Gerrman proprietor Mr Wickner after the departure of the Turks, then its eventual leasing to Jarjoura Kanaza, the grandfather of the Kanaza brothers who you can see everyday at the mill.

Jarjoura's reign of the building from 1905 saw the import some of the some of the finest machinery in Europe at the time as he spared no expense to see his dream of an extravagent spice mill come to life. Jarjoura worked tirelessly with his son Ilya to advance the mill from the age of steam, to diesel machinery, and then many years later, to fully electric motors.
