Holy Caves of Nazareth, Nazareth

(4.4/5 based on 25 reviews on the web)
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.
