  • I echo the remaining comments that this Center is well-worth a visit. It tries to cover a serious religious topic in a dramatic presentation that is above average in clarity and entertainment value - ...  more »
  • The building is located in the heart of Nazarth and offers a breath-taking view from the chapel (you have to see the amazing wall paintings). The hotel is quiet, clean and friendly. The multimedia show is really worth-seeing and the visit of the archeologicall site passionating. In few words: go there.

  • Discover the life of Mary through a multimedia course in a setting in its own juice. This show is really good, we believe! the garden of the centre are beautiful and magnificent views of the spires and minarets of the old city.

  • 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
