Mary’s Well is found just below the Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation in modern-day Nazareth.
The well was positioned over an underground spring that served for centuries as a local watering hole for the Arab villagers.

The well was renovated twice, once in 1967 and once in 2000. The current structure is a symbolic representation of the structure that was once in use, and surrounds it a small garden.

"Mary's Well" or "Ain Maryam", as the locals call it, had been so named since "time immemorial" and that it provided as the city’s main water source for Nazareth Residents and Traverlers.

The Greek Orthodox believe that the the well is the site of Annunciation to Mary. The church has the well inside and we could see the water flowing through a few pipes.
"Can give it a pass"

This is the meeting point for most of the tour pick up. The place was littered with cigarette butts and trash. It should not be Mary's Well, name it otherwise
