We visited both the Orthodox Church and the more traditional Church of Cana. The feel of the history of this area is palpable. The museum underneath the Church of Cana was a treat. While we were there there we tons of pilgrim coming and going, there was a service also happening, but it was a wonderful place to visit.

Cana is a lovely place but i must admit i got lost in the moment drinking the Cana wine...if you go on a tour group and they take you to a particular shop.don't spend your money in that shop check out the other shops as they are all much cheaper even if your guide tells you that you get a discount. Every shop gives a discount if you haggle and trust me its easy to do it

Other than being the obvious attraction site of the supposed place where Jesus performed his first miracle of turning water into wine (as noted along the alley wall approaching the church), there is not much special about his particular church. Although we decided to stop by on our road trip to the north of Israel (needless to say that entering the old city in a car was a bit challenging, and only afterwards finding out that there is a parking lot on the parallel street facing the church, was also a bummer). We asked a passer by how to get there and were kindly directed to the church. The (basic) church itself did not make much of an impression (other than the appropriately placed notices requesting not to write on the (sadly already graffitied) walls.

However, what did leave an impression was the Ethiopian wedding that was taking place there. The couple was dressed according to cultural customs with each wearing a crown, and the guests were also dresses appropriately. Although the ceremony itself was a bit somber, and the newlyweds did not smile at all. It was only after the celebration began (strangely in a store across the alley from the church) that there was a procession to the beating of the drums and customary "wildcall" hoots (not sure what to call that sound) and wine drinking. It was quite a site to behold. We were lucky to have seen something so different from what we are used to. It definitely expanded our appreciation for other cultures and definitely was worth the trip.

This Church stands on a site where Jesus performed his first miracle when he turned water into wine while attending a wedding.
Be sure to visit the Church basement where those old jars are displayed.
