“Step back to 1st century Nazareth and Jesus' home town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

As the land that Nazareth village is sited on has not been built on in modern times probably means that this is pretty much what it would have looked like in the 1st century. Having the people dressed in traditional clothing and doing 1st century tasks puts flesh on the Biblical scriptures. This was excellently communicated by our village guide. The indoor exhibition rooms and shop are good too. A must if visiting Nazareth

“If you are in the area.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Another church showing the life of Jesus. Very nice. Surrounding areas not very clean. Lots of litter. I'm glad I visited as I can tick it off of my list.

“A must to get a feel for the Biblical context”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

This small site on a hillside in the centre of Nazareth is a beautiful and sensitive reconstruction of a first century biblical village, authentically created. Very well laid out and presented with villagers and artisans in costume. Offers some wonderful insights into Biblical Palestine. A real 'must' for pilgrim groups to help understand the historical, cultural biblical context.
