The well sits right next to a busy junction and is close to the Greek church of annunciation.
Its meant to be the place that Mary was drawing water when the angel told her she was to be with child. There isn’t anything in the scriptures that mentions this arch specifically though.
In fact Mary’s well is an iconic part of Nazareth as it appears on official government letterheads and logos, including this man hole cover 🙂
Imagine if you owned a small shop and you did some maintenance on the building to find an ancient bath house was underneath that may date from the time of Jesus? Thats what happened the owners of this building! I didn’t visit this place as its only by tour, so I would have to wait and find some other people to share the NIS120 fee to visit. Looks interesting though!! http://www.nazarethbathhouse.org/en/
