E5 on the Map.

Khirbet. Qana. A small city in Galilee 5 miles south of Sepphoris. This was where Jesus performed His first miracle by turning the water into wine at a wedding feast (Jn 2:1, 11). Wine always pointed to the joy that would be in Messiah's kingdom. Jesus also healed a nobleman's sick son in Cana (Jn 4:46-54). This was also the city of Nathaniel:

John 21:1-2 "After these things Jesus showed Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and in this way He showed Himself: Simon Peter, Thomas called the Twin, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two others of His disciples were together."

In Byzantine and Medieval times a city called Khirbet Qana was identified as the site of the miracle and many pilgrims visited there.
