The caves are the centre point of ancient Nazareth and the gateway to an underground city yet to be excavated.

Ancient Nazarenes built this underground city to escape being captured by Roman soldiers. Sometime after, the caves were discovered and sealed.

Now, the caves have been rediscovered and have given us clear evidence that Nazareth was always an underground city before and long after the birth of Jesus. In fact, the synagogue-turned-Christian-alter might well be the first church of all time.

  • Everything is to be discovered. Religious place of course, but so many things to see and discover. Get there early!

  • Caves of Nazareth were required to attend. We went there in the morning on the day after arrival. We are fortunate to have local priests speak Russian and something told us about this extraordinary place

  • The caves are located underneath the city, and breathtaking when you go down there. Some sort of mystery, a sense of mystery. One feeling that im so many ages and we got into such antiquity
