On Paul VI Street, the main drag of the Old City of Nazareth, you will find Mary’s Well, which is known to Christians as the spot where the angel Gabriel first told Mary, the mother of Jesus, that she would have a son: the Annunciation.

Right next to it is the beautiful Greek Orthodox Basilica of the Annunciation, which was last rebuilt in 1767, after being destroyed and rebuilt by multiple conquerors.
