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 (John 2).
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.

The Gospel of John refers a number of times to a town called Cana of Galilee ( Ancient Greek: Κανὰ τῆς Γαλιλαίας). The name possibly derives from the Hebrew or Aramaic word for reeds.
