Social Event - Nazareth Tour and Dinner

Time: November 19, between 14:40 - 21:00
Depart IBM - Haifa and drive into the hills of Galilee. Your journey takes you to Nazareth and the places where it is believed Jesus lived, preached, and performed his miracles.

Upon arrival in the fascinating town of Nazareth, filled with rich historical significance, you'll have the opportunity to explore the amazing Basilica of the Annunciation, one of Christendom's most revered shrines and the largest church in the Middle East. The Basilica is built on the same site where the Archangel Gabriel revealed to Mary that she would be the mother of the Messiah.

Among the mesmerizing sites you'll see here is the altar, which incorporates a portion of the grotto where Mary lived. A remarkable 170-foot- high cupola that rises high above the upper church adds to the Basilica's grandeur and allows the interior to be illuminated with natural light. You will also find a significant collection of magnificent mosaics, ceramic reliefs and other marvelous works of art from around the world adorning the vast interior. Your next stop is the Church of Joseph, which is built over the chambers that once housed Joseph's carpentry shop. Inside this lovely church you will find wonderful stained glass windows adorning the church's outer walls. From here, it's a walk through the colorful bazaar and onward past Mary's Well, a white stone fountain that serves as a shrine commemorating the Virgin Mary. The shrine is located at the site of an ancient underground spring where it is believed Jesus and his mother came to draw water.

We will conclude our day with a unique and delicious dinner.
