    The Visitation Church

    by Bregman Updated May 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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)

    Directions: From Mary's spring go westwards and climb the hill all the way to top.

    Mary's Spring

    by Bregman Written May 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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...
