Nazareth, Israel: Mary’s Well; things to do

Mary’s Well  

This famous site is believed to be where the Angel Gabriel appeared to Mary and announced that she would bear the Son of God (an event known as the Annunciation).  Located just below the Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation, Mary's Well is positioned over an underground spring that was for centuries a local watering hole for the Arab villagers.  It is now like a city park.
