The caves are the centre point of ancient Nazareth and the gateway to an underground city yet to be excavated.

Ancient Nazarenes built this underground city to escape being captured by Roman soldiers.

Sometime after, the caves were discovered and sealed.

Now, the caves have been rediscovered and have given us clear evidence that Nazareth was always an underground city before and long after the birth of Jesus.

In fact, the synagogue-turned-Christian-alter might well be the first church of all time.

A place that keeps a cave hiding Christians by oppressors oppression. You do not have much to see. In addition, only a person takes care of this place and gives you no explanation as to what this...
