Finally a place of significance without a church built over it. This is the place where Jesus managed to walk through the mob which intended to push him down the cliff. One of the few places that are not commercialised. Enough said.

Great place to see many far away sites and place them in relationship to Nazareth. Adds understanding to the scriptures about wanted to throw Jesus off the cliff because they did not like his teaching. It is worth the gentle climb from the parking lot...More

I liked it very much because it’s not that crowded, the views are excellent and the history behind it makes the whole place that much better... It was a very enjoyable stop!! No need to post any pics, they don’t do the place any justice!!
