St. Joseph Church, Nazareth

4.4
Thought by many to occupy the site of the carpentry workshop of the husband to Virgin Mary, St. Joseph Church represents a modest example of Romanesque Revival style architecture. Built in 1914, the church covers an underground network of caves and early Crusader church remains. Enter the simple public threshold of the Franciscan Roman Catholic church, and descend the short staircase to the crypt for a glimpse at a small section of the underground system of rock-cut chapel and caves. Notice the recurrence of the figure of Joseph across the church's numerous stained glass windows.

  • St. Joseph Church St in Nazareth. Joseph Church's neighbor, close to the Holy Mother's lecture hall, was built in 1914 to follow the earlier church site. The Church of San Joseph is a Roman Romanesque architecture style, and is a Gothic building that is a semi-circular arch in the middle century of the European continent. At that time, there are more than 100 years, and now the church will still hold abbreviation for, let the faithful come together to meditate on prayer, the serious ritual so that the visitors dare not wow whining disturb, slowly walk through the Church circle, let the silence with the heart of peace and joy away.

  • It is the Church of Joseph in the immediate vicinity of the Annunciation Church. The altar and the old ruins were left in the basement. The stained glass of the carpenter motif was interesting.

  • Because the church is close to the Annunciation Basilica. The history of St. Joseph's workshop is rather a good one and historically not to be secured.
