Mary’s Well

We continued our road trip to Nazareth. One of the most significant sites in Nazareth is Mary’s Well. Biblically, this well was where the Annunciation took place in Luke 1:26-38. This is the location where Angel Gabriel appeared to the Virgin Mary and announced she would bear the son of God. Located in Nazareth, 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.

The well has two sides, one is more rustic in nature where you can see down into a stone structure and the other is the front of the well that looks more ornate like a wall to mark the structure.
