Cana is an Arab village 4 km north of Nazareth identified by many as the place where Jesus performed “the first miracle” of turning water into wine during a wedding.

Two churches in the village mark the event, one Catholic and the other Greek-Orthodox.

Under the Catholic church remains of an ancient Jewish Synagogue can be seen.
