Nazareth - The City Of Annunciation
Nazareth lays in the lower Galilee and not far from the lake of the Sea of Galilee,
is a small city of mainly modern appearance. Nazareth is a mix of races and religions.
The historical city of Nazareth is one of the major places around the world where celebrations
to mark the year AD 2000 took place.
A real visit to Nazareth is much more than just a tour of the Old City. One of the basic rules for understanding Nazareth is to get to know its surrounding landscape: a horsehoe-shaped bally whose concave side faces the Jezreel Vallry. At one end of the horseshoe, on the open side, a large cliff steeply drops down to the vally's fields.
The heart of Nazareth is the Old City, which is comprised of two parts: the nucleus - the historical and religious core - and the ``casing" - the markets, mansions, and houses on the slope of the Nebi Sa'in Ridge. The expansion of the city's tourism area will bring the visitors to the top of the ridge and from there to the city and its chrches.
