Mary's Well in Nazareth

Mary's Well may be the location where the Angel Gabriel appeared to Mary to tell her that she would give birth to the Son of God.  This event took place in Nazareth and is called the annunciation.  The spring waters from Mary's well ,which leads to the public fountain, was used during ancient times.  Nearby is the Orthodox Church of St. Gabriel, which supposedly sits atop the actual site of Mary's well.

  1. Hi Chloe!

    Thank you for sharing your journal and photos! I wanted to go see the pyramids of Egypt, but now I think I want to go to Israel instead. Will you be posting more about your experiences? Please do if you can. :-)
