    Jesus' cave

    Just about 1 kilometre outside the village of Qana you can visit the cave where Jesus, together with his disciples, is supposed to have taken refuge several times from the heat. Apparently he brought his disciples there to hold lessons and teach them. The cave is clearly marked from the village, and it is well-kept: there is a path that leads you past some ancient and interesting bas-reliefs, and eventually into the cave itself. The site is clearly marked by a cross.

    the "miracle cave" bas-reliefs

    the apostoles bas-relief

    In the area where the "miracle cave" lies, you can find several interesting bas-reliefs that are said to date back about 2000 years. They all represent scens and people from the bible: you have a carved stone showing Jesus turning water into wine, two other ones with Mary holding her child, Lazarus rising from its death, and several other ones showing the apostoles. To find them it's really easy: all you have to do is follow the gravel paths of the site, and you'll see them. The keeper of the site speaks a reasonable French, and for a 5000 lebanese pounds baksheesh, he will show you around and explain all the carvings
