In the old city tucked away amid shops. We visited on a tour of churches. Great shops around as well and always greeted by friendly people.

This is a synagogue which is situated at old market in Nazareth. This place is quite inside and not easily identified. Okay place.

More of significance given history than actual beauty in the building it self. Both outside and inside not too photogenic
