NAZARETH CROSS, THE WORLD'S LARGEST AND MOST IMPRESSIVE CROSS




Nazareth (Arabic an-Nāzirah) is a town in northern Israel, 88 miles north of Jerusalem. Nazareth has a population of about 60,000, of whom half are Arab Muslim and half are Arab Christian.

Nazareth was the hometown of Jesus and thus is one of the most important Christian sites in the Holy Land. Christian pilgrims have been coming to Nazareth since the 4th century.

Important sights in Nazareth include several churches, traditional biblical sites, Byzantine ruins, and especially the modern Basilica of the Annunciation, which stands over the traditional site of Gabriel's announcement to Mary that she would give birth to the savior of the world.
