Known worldwide as the hometown of Jesus Christ, Nazareth draws flocks of pilgrims who come to see the place where Christ grew up, and follow his footsteps along the Jesus Trail.
Visit Sea of Galilee and The Church of the Annunciation for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Church of the Primacy of Peter (in Tabgha), Yardenit (in Kinneret) and Magdala (in Migdal). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Mount of Beatitudes, take in the spiritual surroundings of Church of the Multiplication, stroll through International Center Mary of Nazareth, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Tabor.
