DK book on Nazareth does not even mention this although lonely planet rate it highly. No.1 I think. Really interesting and a great insight to the timeline of the area. Casts doubts on some religious stuff. The owners have dug the site out as no...More

We arrived, and we looking forward to this. However they were not giving anymore tours that day. Check in advance if you really want to do this. There is a gift shop on the premises that you can get some souvenier shopping done.

We took a tour with the owner Elias who was very kind and gave us a lot of historic information about the place. You will see and literally touch a piece of the history.

Elias, who owns the bath house with his wife, Martina, is a charismatic character with an amazing story to tell. There is something very humbling about being in a place that has existed for more than 2000 years and to hear a first hand account...More
