Holy Caves of Nazareth
Holy Caves of Nazareth are the center of this town. There have not been many findings in Nazareth so these caves are particularly important to proof that people inhabited this area before the birth of Jesus. These holy caves are an ancient underground city that was built by the Jews and Christians to hide from the Roman persecutors.
Much of the history here lies underground hidden from the modern eyes. Underneath the earth lies what could possibly be the world’s first church altar in its undisturbed state. There is also another cave that is located at the Sisters of Nazareth convent which is near the Church of Annunciation. This cave has catacombs, mosaics and paved streets within the Holy Caves of Nazareth.
It is vital to make use of the services of a professional tour guide when visiting the Holy Caves of Nazareth. Not many people go here due to the lack of knowledge and factual information about it so a tour guide will definitely contribute to the significance of the visit to this remarkable place in Israel.
The caves are dark, but flash lights will provide ample light to experience how the people created and moved around so many years ago.
