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.

"A somewhat underwhelming highlight of the classic Nazareth tour"

Supposedly the well from which mary drank on her way to Egypt, the Structure erected above the actual well (dry now) is probably Ottoman and stands in the middle of a somewhat neglected public square...
"Not an active well!"

Just outside the greek Orthodox church. Quick stop on the way to see the church. A good spot for a quick picture.
"Not worth a visit!!"

You can delete this name from your itinerary.There is no water in the so called well and it's basically a garden and nothing else.
