  • The center is beautiful, the chapel very beautiful with a superb view on the rooftops of Nazareth and the "film" very well realized and very beautiful. Whether you are a believer or not, it relates the life of this man who existed, Jesus, and who preached for good and the right!

  • We chose to visit this center, which was a great idea. It doesn't cost anything to get in, but there are still volunteer guides that tell you a little while allowing you to explore the place on your own. You have the opportunity to watch a small movie show in an hour, which I would definitely recommend to take the time for. You get the whole story from when the Virgin Mary is born to Jesus dies on the cross. It's a super nice show with light effects, audio and video. So if you are going to Nazareth then this place is a must see. After the show, we chose to go up on their rooftop terrace and enjoy the view of the Church of the Church of the Annunciation.
