    Visitation Church

    A beautiful church located on a hill overlooking Ein Kerem. This was Elisabeth and Zacharias summer home. They were the parents of John the Baptist. Mary, Elisabeth's cousin came to visit her here, whence the church name. They were both pregnant at the time, as can be seen in a little statue right in the entrance. Upon seeing her cousin, Mary started to sing the text which is now written on the wall next to the entrance in dozens of languages.

    Opening Hours:

    Mon-Sat 8:00-11:45 14:30-17:00 (Apr-Sep until 18:00)

    Mary's Spring

    Right before going up the hill to visit her cousin Elisabeth, Mary stopped to have a drink of water in this spring. While the water was probably OK 2000 years ago, you shouldn't try to drink it nowadays...
