Near the famous Church of the Annunciation there is the beautiful structure of the Sisters of Nazareth Convent. The Sisters of Nazareth Convent was established by nuns who arrived here from France in the mid 19th century.


During the process of the construction of the convent fascinating archeological finds from the 1st and 2nd centuries CE were discovered underground.


With prearrangement you can visit this place and one of the nuns will lead you to these finds- a great arched hall, water cisterns, mosaics, an ancient church altar and also a burial cave that dates to the time of the Second Jewish Temple, the entrance to which is still sealed by the burial stone.

Next to the Sisters of Nazareth Convent the nuns have also founded a school, a church and an inn for Christian pilgrims.

"Episcopal pilgrimage to the Holy Land"
10 September 2018
Great place to stay. Very convenient location. Good food. Wine available for purchase. Shopping and ATMs nearby. Amazing discovery under the facility: a first century Jewish home. Did Jesus live here?
"Quiet Beauty in the Heart of Nazareth"

The Sisters of Nazareth Convent/Guesthouse is a lovely place in the old city, just steps away from The Basilica. We spent 3 nights there and it was indeed a pleasurable stay. The rooms are very clean...
"Great location and beautiful building"
04 September 2017
This convent is in a great location. Once you enter the doorway, its unbelievably beautiful inside. The sisters are very kind. Breakfast was a big disappointment. It's not worth the money to eat...
