Nazareth, Northern District, Israel
The Ancient Village of Nazareth
The parts that were carved out of the soft local rock are the best preserved: cistern for storing rainwater, silos set on different levels for storing foodstuff, a winepress, cellars for full jars, stables with mangers for the live stock, a bread oven.
The part farthest to the east is traditionally known as the "Virgin's kitchen" because of its proximity to the sacred grotto.
