Mary's Well, Nazareth

2.3
#8 of 12 in Historic Sites in Nazareth
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. A visit to Mary's Well represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Nazareth road trip planning website to plot your vacation.
