  • It is worth the hike. The church is beautiful and so is the view. For the viewpoint, enter through the gate and continue straight until you see the church's façade. The viewpoint is opposite of it. If the church is closed, go around the left side of the building up the stairs, and then enter through the school (now on your right).
  • Worth visit at the top of the hill of Nazareth. Please check the schedules of the church as it might happen that you climb the stairs in the heat and the place is closed. Even though it is closed, you will enjoy the views from there.
