Nazareth town to-day
Nazareth which lays in the lower Galilee not far from the lake of the Sea of Galilee, is a small city of mainly modern appearance. It is a mix of races and religions. 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.
