Mary's Well, Nazareth

2.0
#8 of 14 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.

  • This side is easy to overlook because it comes across as a hanging spot for youngsters. Dirt on the ground and grafiti on the well  more »

  • A must visit place. Please use some imagination (of the 1st century), when you are at this place. Serene !
  • It is slightly disappointing. There is no longer any water running to the well. It's located at the end of a busy high street, the only thing it's full of is, a few empty crisp packets.
  • There is really nothing to see here, there isn't even water anywhere close to the well. Don't bother going
  • Great shopping at Supermarket Abu Basra Abu Hani a gentleman
  • Nothing noteworthy.
