This underwhelming replica of the place is where the angel Gabriel came to Mary to tell her she would bear a son. There is no water in the well which is full of coins and litter. On the other side of the room is a...More

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.

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

Nothing wrong with it being a replica, but there was no flowing water, and the upkeep of it, or lack thereof, showed that there was no reverence for this important site. There was even grafitti on the monument!

So blessed to visit this place in Nazareth, it’s a small church and easier to travel to, visited here on Sunday,it was very peaceful You can fill holy water from inside church, few shops around the church,where you could buy empty bottles Highly recommended

It is a small building with a well and probably would not be noticed if it were not named Mary’s well. It is at least worth driving by. Our tour bus pointed it out, but we didn’t stop.

Well, a dry one anyway. Very little to see really. The water supply have been cut off from the Orthodox Church behind. The area is great for a drink or meal. Very busy.

It’s a fountain with no water in a busy street, you have to find a parking spot (not likely) and brave traffic to get close enough for a picture... some people might find it worth it (not me). You’ve seen all there is to see...More

The square its located in is commercialized now but if you are interested in the story of the annunciation; its a must see. It’s a quick stop, not a whole lot to see or do. I can highly recommend the restaurant directly behind the well.
