Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation/Church of St. Gabriel/St. Gabriel's Greek Orthodox Church
Probably established in Byzantine-era Palestine, this Eastern Orthodox church was rebuilt during the Crusades and again in the 18th century. It currently serves Nazareth’s Arab citizens. The church is located over an underground spring, which according to Eastern Orthodox belief is where at the time of the Annunciation the Virgin Mary got her water. Water from the spring still runs inside the church apse and also feeds into the adjacent Mary's Well, located 150 yards from the church.
