Mary's Well, Nazareth

(170+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
A popular Christian attraction, Mary's Well marks the spot where the Angel Gabriel allegedly appeared to the Virgin Mary. Used for centuries, the well probably served most of ancient Nazareth, so it's fair to assume young Mary drew drinking water from this spot on a daily basis. Make Mary's Well part of your personalized Nazareth itinerary using our Nazareth trip itinerary planner.
