Precipice Mountain

Holy Places

Precipice Mountain, on the outskirts of Nazareth, is where tradition says the people of the city pursued Jesus and where Mary quaked with fear until she saw him emerge unharmed.

A new road leads to the top of the mountain, where Pope Benedict XVI celebrated Mass in May 2009. From the peak, where the cliff plunges to the Jezreel Valley, you'll enjoy a magnificent panorama as you contemplate this dramatic story.
