Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
CANA . A GalilÃ¦an village, where Christ turned water into wine ( John 2:1 ) and healed with a word a nohleman’s son who lay sick at Capernaum ( John 4:46 ). Nathanael was a native of this place ( John 21:2 ). Three sites have been suggested as identifications, any one of which would satisfy the meagre indications. These are Kanat el-Jelil , perhaps the most probable, north of Sephurieh; ‘Ain Kana , east of Nazareth; and Kefr Kenna , north-east of, and a little farther from, the same town. The last is the site fixed upon by ecclesiastical tradition.
