  • 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
