  • Great view of the city from the roof garden. Extremely pleasant staff. Their efforts deserve more visitors especially since they function on donations. 
  • In Nazareth, close to major Churches, there is nothing. This Centre is a wonderful exception. Is practically attached to the basilica of the Annunciation. You can see the Bible, through the multimedia rooms, in 4 d. From the rooftop you can enjoy the beauty of the landscape Nazzareno. A special mention deserve the sisters who run the Centre. Exceptional! Very kind and attentive. I went alone. I had to cause more annoyance than anything else. They treated me with the same importance you give to groups of 100 people. You do not pay the ticket and 10 euros bid are very little for what the place offers. I left 20 euros.

  • Been there saw it from outside. Very close to the nazereth old market. Looks like an impressing house. Next time we'll come in the open hr's to visit.
  • Mary of Nazareth International center presents a set of high resolution movies on the life of Mary and Jesus in a nice and modern complex. During the creation of the center interesting antiquities were uncovered, including first century remains, of possibly the neighbors of Mary of Nazareth.
  • A lovely presentation, and very modern and unique with state of the art technology. Was expecting something boring, and it turned out to be the opposite.
  • Superb home. A beautiful recreation of the life of Mary
