Attractions

Sepphoris

The park, located at a distance of 6 km from Nazareth, delights lovers of antiquity. In the first half of the twentieth century archaeologists began to work here and since then have extracted many amazing examples of culture and architecture. Work has not stopped so far. Historians will probably say more than once that they found something remarkable in Sepphoris.

Today in the park you can see a unique villa of the Roman period with two floors. It was built in the III century BC. Home decoration is striking in scale and subtle execution. So, the floors are decorated with magnificent mosaics, one of which went down in history under the name of Mona Lisa of Galilee.

In addition, the Roman theater, pavement, water supply and a whole network of streets have been preserved in Sepphoris. The so-called Nile house (it dates back to the 5th century) and the synagogue, built a century laterhave been preserved  too. The floors here, as in the villa, are decorated with skillfully executed mosaics. The most famous mosaic image in the synagogue is a circle consisting of zodiac signs.
