Modern Nazareth township
Nazareth is home to both Christians and Muslims (the largest Arab population left in Israel) and is a quaint amalgamation of red roofs and white churches dotted along the slopes of the Galilean hillside. Breathtaking views can be enjoyed from the summit, which looks out onto the Jezreel Valley. A large town in the Arab part of Israel, it is an important Christian locality. As the site of the Angel's Annunciation to the Virgin Mary and the place where Jesus spent most of his life, it has attracted Christian pilgrims for the last 1,500 years.
