St. Gabriel's Church, Nazareth

4.6
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.

  • Nice little site close to the city centre. Accessible to the disabled. I just wish if only contacts without a guide don't know anything about the site. No material on this site, but I highly recommend.
