It is a very small building which contains the well.There is nothing special about it, You just go around it in five minutes, and that it. But it is in the center city and the area is full of restaurants and shops.

Mary’s well is located at the downtown square and there are many wonderful restaurants and shops around it. But there is no water at the well and it’s not kept up. Nothing much to look at and not maintained as one might expect.

I hope I don't hurt anybody feelings but this is tiny (but holy) little building. There is not much to do there except just walking around which takes you two minutes tops. Still, for Christians it is holy place and while being in Nazareth I...More

Mary's Well itself is nothing special, but because of many restaurants and shops in its area, many tourists pass it along. And in the weeks leading to Christmas or Easter, the place is crowded because of Holiday events that take place around it.

Certainly this well has Biblical significance (according to Greek Orthodox), but the no-longer-functioning well itself has not much to offer. Can simply take a quick look for a minute or two when one passes by.

We visited the site and were given a glimpse to how the get water in time past. God made the earth to be self sufficient. As knowledge increases, we introduce more complex systems that make living also complex.

Might and probably is the original place but the fountain itself is much later. It is said, however, that this site has supplied water for 2000 years....

Significant place to visit and worth the steep walk uphill to reach it. Again, development has left it untouched but in the midst of bars, cafes and shops.

There is a well in a cave which is supposed to have been the well used by Mary. The water can be collected from an Urn with a tap. Can be skipped
