The place is known as Saint Paul's well. It is considered as holy place for pligrimage. In old times, the water of the well was supposed to be holy and useful for healing.

Cool partially excavated well. Sometimes the well is open for drinking, but, it was closed when we went by the guards.

Inspiring place to stop. Entrance is cheap and it's great to drink from the well. Well preserved ruins. The well is located about a one minute walk from the St. Paul's park down a small alley.
