Cana, Nazareth

4.0
#6 of 19 in Things to do in Nazareth
Visit the ancient town of Cana, traditionally believed to be the site of Jesus’ first miracle: turning water into wine at a wedding celebration. Also known as 'Kafr Kanna', the Arab Israeli town boasts a 19th-century Franciscan church, a popular spot for marriage vow renewals. Besides the Catholic church, you can also visit the Greek Orthodox church across the square or take the challenging hike to the nearby hilltop ruins of the ancient village.

  • This is a modernised small town with little indication on the Wedding at Cana- unless it is in a falafel shop. Still okay to tick off places to go, as long as you keep going.  more »
  • Good all day! I'm already in Israel in the 6th time, but first time I Kanah. Visiting this small town was part of the excursions "Galilee Christian". It is a small town on the road from Arab Nazareth to Tiberias. This city is mentioned in the Gospel of John as the place where the marriage was contracted and where Jesus Christ created the first Miracle of turning water into wine. The local tourist shop in addition to traditional souvenirs you can buy great pomegranate wine (approx. $30 a bottle) and Cahors, which are produced only at Kanah. Pripasite frm for yourself if you plan to get married or bring as a gift to relatives or friends who are planning a wedding! It will be a great gift! Such a marriage will be happy and strong! All great impressions!

  • With a group of friends visited the Church and part of the village. Charming refrain to read, in the Church, the gospel passages that recall the episode of the marriage which had taken part in Mary and Jesus. As in other holy places in the area (as Mount Tabor) is impossible not to feel emotion. Recommended
