Cana of Galilee | Joe Walsh Tours

Cana of Galilee

Visit the site of the wedding chapel where Jesus performed a miracle and turned water into wine. A Catholic church built in 1879 marks the traditional site of the chapel, and the nearby Greek Orthodox Church is home to two stone jars believed by the Greek Orthodox followers to be connected to the miracle of the wine. Inspired by the miracle, some pilgrims come to this site to renew their wedding vows and strengthen their marriage.
