Nazareth the village of Maria and Joseph

In Galilee in Northern Israel Nazareth was 2000 years ago a poor little village.
Nathanael spoke with Philip about Nazareth (John 1:46):
45Philip found Nathanael, and said to him, "We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, wrote: Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph."
46Nathanael said to him, "Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?" Philip said to him, "Come and see."

It became the cradle of Christianity.
Here Maria, Joseph and Jesus lived.
Here according to the tradition Gabriel announced Maria that she was pregnant.
Nowadays it is a centre of pilgrimage and tourism.
