Fountain of the Virgin at Nazareth. This spring, which is protected by an arched recess of modern Turkish work, can be seen at the extreme southern end of the village. Here every morning at seven o'clock the women come to draw the water necessary for the day's needs. The gay colours of the Oriental costumes lend a peculiarly fitting charm to the scene, strangely in contrast with the modern building of the fountain. According to tradition, the Angel Gabriel met the Virgin Mary at this village well.
