#7 of 11 in Historic Sites in Nazareth
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • The well is actually also a church. A beautiful one indeed. So the "well" is 20 meters away from the old church  more »
  • While the square around the well has a nice, laid-back atmosphere, the sight itself is not very impressive. It is not even the original thing and there are no explanations whatsoever.  more »
  • Touristy and good photo-op !! Surrounded by cafes/restaurants..... nice drive in to Nazareth to see the modernization of the place as compared to when Jesus walked there... spent about 15 minutes here...  more »
