Cana of Galilee

Cana of Galilee

Cana of Galilee is known as the place where Jesus performed his first miracle of turning water into wine.

Cana of Galilee is mentioned several times in John's Gospel. It is best known as the place where the Marriage of Cana of Galilee took place and where Jesus performed his first miracle: the turning of water into wine (John 2:1).

Later, Jesus stopped at Cana of Galilee once more, and during his stay there he performed the miracle of healing by word. He was visited by a king of Capernaum whose son was seriously ill.

There is a Catholic Church of the Crowning and a Greek Orthodox Church of St. George, built on the site of the biblical event, according to Catholic and Greek Orthodox tradition, respectively.
