It's natural to visit the St. Joseph church after the visit to the Annunciation church because it's connected through a garden. It's a MUST visit if you are following the footsteps of Jesus because this is the place that it's said to have been build...More

A beautiful church for its time. This is where Joseph worked and Jesus grew up. Some very nice pictures of the Holy family. Well worth a visit if in Nazareth.

Be sure to look at all the mosaics from different countries around the Church of the Annunciation that continue into St Joseph Church. Allow time to read & reflect on the Bible passage in Luke 1:26-38 regarding the Angel talking to Mary.

Nice little church right next to the Church of the Annunciation. Do not miss the grotto, said to be the ruins of Joseph’s house. Interesting.

This modern church is built next to the church of Annunciation on a much smaller scale. It is said its built on top of Joseph's workshop however there isn't any evidence of that. You can go down the stairs and see some old mosaics from...More

This is a smaller church adjacent to the church of annunciation. On the ground level they had a communion mass when we visited with chanting and on the basement you can see some catacombs and they have group tours. It is a very nice little...More
