  • A very nice place, with a strategic location! The chapel on the roof is a must, with a view of the Basilica of the Annunciation and all Nazareth. The slide show presented in four different rooms is worth the time you spend. Even if there is no special devotion to Mary of Nazareth (is not the case of all Christians; it is, for example, the case of Catholics but not that of the Protestants - Jesus never asked nor encouraged to a special veneration for his earthly mother), the place is definitely worth the visit. Topics can only encourage the internalization and reflection...

  • Very nice Center to see the ruins of houses of the 1st century. There are terraces in the Sun, a beautiful chapel on the roofs. To see to understand the Christian faith and its roots in Judaism.

  • 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
