    Muhtar Sweets
    3 more images

    According to our Israeli friend this is the most popular dessert shop in Nazareth. We went inside to take some pictures but although we hadn’t had any sweet earlier that day we decided not to buy something! It used to be a bit out of center in the past but since 1994 is located in the city center.

    We saw some women bringing large trayes with different sweets like baklava, sahlab and many others but the most famous is kenafeh (kunefe in Turkish or kadaifi in greek), from what I saw it’s thinner than the greek version. It’s a Levantine cheese pastry soaked in sweet sugar-based syrup.

    There are also simple sweets here, bisquits, donut type sweets etc

    With so many christian pilgrims it was no surprise to see many souvenir stores that focus on Christian related items (icons, crosses, bibles, rosaries etc).

    As expected there’s also a colorful souq (arab market) that extends up the hill starting from the church of Annunciation, it was pretty empty during our visit with many stores already closed but we walked a bit around the narrow streets as much of the stuff was for locals and not only tacky tourist souvenirs.

    Souvenir Shops of Nazareth: Nazareth Souvenir Shops

    since the primary source of income of nazareth is centered on tourism and almost all of the tourists going to Nazareth are Christian Pilgrims of whatever denominations from all over the world, there are lots of souvenir shops and stalls around Nazareth and on the main road going to the Basilica of the Annunciation that sells everything from Bibles, Nazareth Books, Crosses, Crucifixes, Rosaries, scapulars and non religious items like my favorite fridge magnets, post cards, maps, key chains, t-shirts and a lot more.

    most shops are opened from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm everyday

    What to buy: all the souvenir and christian religous items you can think of.

    What to pay: you must haggle to get the best price as prices here tend to be inflated and haggling is the norm.

    We have been brought to a gift shop by our guide before visiting the Basilica. There were a lot of icons and religious attributes which could remind you a visit to Nazareth if you bought something there.
    It was pleasant that many of advertisements were in Russian and a shop manager spoke Russian.

    You can watch my 2 min 11 sec HD Video Nazareth Icon Shopping out of my Youtube channel.
