Our Nazareth location opened its doors in 2005 in a beautiful 200 years old Arab mansion. Located in the heart of the Old City, the Fauzi Azar is a great starting point for exploring the area as well as the outskirts of Nazareth or hiking the Jesus Trail.
As a pioneer of bringing people of different faiths and origins together in Nazareth, the Fauzi Azar became a local symbol of unity and peace in a once-troubled neighborhood. It’s a place where Christians, Muslims, Jews, and others can work and live together, share ideas, thoughts and lifestyle, and successfully built a thriving community based on mutual respect. Read more about the spectacular story of the Fauzi Azar here.
The Fauzi Azar, traditionally named after its last owner, hosts up to 50 travelers and daily events. The building is dominated by Ottoman architecture, from the quiet courtyard to the spacious Liwan featuring three enormous arched windows overlooking the Old City and the Basilica of the Annunciation. In the evenings, the space fills up when people come together to learn Arabic, participate in cooking workshops or enjoy the music nights.
