Aana, عانا, is a village in the Western Bekaa District of Lebanon, about 57km from Lebanon's capital, Beirut. Its name comes from the Syriac word 'ono, which means 'the flock'. The village has two churches, one dedicated to St. Elias (Elijah) and the other to the Virgin Mary, located in the adjacent borough of Deir Tahniche. The village is watered by a spring known as Shamsyne (Arabic, meaning 'the Two Suns'). The village produces wine and fruit. The wines of Chateau Musar grow in a tract of land about 5 km long, land that is the home of Lebanese-Brazilian Carlos Eddé.
