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.

Cana

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.

Book a Private Tour to the Cana

Cana is in the lower Galilee, 4 km north of Nazareth  . It is about 2 hours drive from Tel-Aviv, and takes about 1 hours to explore.

Since I only offer full day tours, I recommend to contact me for a proposal of a full day tour of Jerusalem, that will also include Cana.
