Landmark Tourist Spot
Every year, three million people visit Ein Kerem, the site of John the Baptist's birth. Because of its ties to Christian history, this area remains a popular attraction for many Christian pilgrims visiting Israel. The neighborhood boasts several notable churches and monasteries, as well as Mary's Spring, an ancient aqueduct where the Virgin Mary once stopped for a drink of water. Many believers consider the spot sacred, and make a special trip to fill their bottles with the holy water.
