A Gem

An interesting and quiet sanctuary amid Beirut's bustle. The old church, rebuilt after the civil war is an architectural gem.

As many churches it is a quiet place where you will find a good atmosphere to distance oneself from the busy and loud life of Beirut's streets. When I went there, there was almost nobody in the church.

Beirutis were lucky that religious sites in the downtown were preserved from the axe of modernity as St George Church proves it well. It is well restored while preserving the original design and material. A nice place to stop by when you are in downtown.

Their is also a passage that will allow you to visit the old cathedral through the new cathedral! It is located in the... More

The church is beautiful and has a wonderful feel to it. There is damage from past wars and tragedies but the story and aura of the church remains. I went with my wife and both of us had a lovely experience. You have to walk to it albeit a short walk due to the nearby roads being closed off for... More

There is a tour under the church, in which it tells the story of past churches built on the same site over hundreds of years, there is also old graves under the church. It's very interesting.

The econistas is another piece of art. the cathedral lies up on ancient ruins. just across the yard, you can visit a small chapel dedicated to Holy St. Mary and known as "saydet... More

Toured the church which is near to the old Basilica. It's a very modern facility with congregation seating that is on an incline. Loved the design of the windows and roof/ceiling.

One of the Must-See places in Lebanon, needs 1 to 2 hours visit, and includes a very old cathedral which was first built in the 5th century and an archeological museum. The church which bordered the auditorium of Beirut's Roman law school, was destroyed as part of Beirut in 551 following a massive earthquake to be rebuilt in the 12th... More

A beautiful service, in a beautifully rennovated church (Cathedral). A wonderful sermon by the Archbishop Audi.
