Nazareth Things to Do: 78 reviews and 259 photos
An interesting tour around the world in 10 minutes is in the grounds of the Basilica. Here there are artworks and carvings of Mary and child donated from Catholic communities all around the world - East Asia, Europe, Central America, the Pacific, you name it.
It was quite strange to find the donation from Sri Lanka, where I lived before Nazareth, with its Sinhala inscription. I also found one from Wales, my home country, and numerous other countries I've visited, from China and Vietnam to Italy and Ireland. I tried to find one from Sudan but unfortunately the collection doesn't seem to have stretched quite that far yet. Leaving aside the geographic interest, it's a very attractive and colourful collection and well worth a look.
