Basilica of Jesus the Adolescent
The Basilica of Jesus the Adolescent (Hebrew: כנסייה הסלזיאנית) also simply known as the Salesian church, is the name given to a Catholic church in Nazareth in Israel, belonging to the Salesians of Don Bosco. The church is located next to the school of the Salesians. In Gothic style, was built between 1906 and 1923 on a hill called "Mount of the Start" which overlooks the city, where, according to tradition, Jesus spent his youth.
From the terrace of the church there is an exceptional view of the old city of Nazareth, divided (as Jerusalem) in neighborhoods for Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Muslims.
