Cana is an Arab town north-east of Nazareth, on the road towards Tiberius. It is believed to be the site of Jesus’ first miracle, when he turned water into wine at a wedding reception (John 2:1-11). To commemorate this event Franciscan church exhibits a type of jar said to have contained the water Jesus turned into wine

Cana was also the home of Nathanael, a disciple of Jesus (John 21:2). A Chapel now stands over the site of his house.
