Near the large, modern Arab town of Kfar Kanna in the Lower Galilee, lies the site of the ancient Jewish village of Cana, mentioned in the New Testament. The area has become a popular pilgrimage site, as it is here that Jesus is said to have performed his first miracle of turning water into wine. The village features a street of churches with peaceful little plazas, and an attractive promenade lined with some upmarket hotels allowing visitors to enjoy the convenience of modern facilities while they explore the area’s ancient historical treasures. The town’s primary attraction is the Catholic Church which rests on the site where the miracle of the wine is thought to have taken place. Along with its burial caves and warm and welcoming locals, Cana makes a great base for exploring the wonders of this ancient area.
