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.

"On the road"
20 May 2018
This small arched covering supposedly marks the spot where there was a well that Mary and also Jesus would have come to get water. It is on the main road going down to the Church of the Annunciation
"Not Much To See"
25 March 2018
It's a small structure containing a well. It takes only one minute to walk the entire peripheral area of the structure. There are no explanation, and looks very run down. There is really not much...
"Graffiti and trash"
13 March 2018
This side is easy to overlook because it comes across as a hanging spot for youngsters. Dirt on the ground and grafiti on the well
