St. Gabriel's Church represents a Greek Orthodox church formed around the well where the Virgin Mary heard she would give birth to Jesus Christ. It was likely originally built during the Byzantine era and served as the village's water supply. Upon entering, you can feel the cool air and hear the sound of water trickling. The inside walls feature a display of colorful religious murals. Ancient steps descend down to the lower chapel, which features Armenian decorative tiles and the spring where one can collect water. On the north side, the spring can be seen beneath the altar, which features a lavish collection of icons dedicated to Mary.

  • This church, Orthodox rite, remembers the first Annunciation of the Archangel Gabriele in Maria. It's quite dark, but very rich, with a beautiful ash iconostasis. Descending a staircase leads to the source to which would have drawn the water the Virgin when she had the advertisement.
