I guess we were very close to that place, but we dind't find it and noone could tell us where it was, though I asked both in English and in Arabic.

Great Cathedral, just when you get inside you feel the silence roaming. You can sit for hours and not get bored, just contemplating the beauty of the icons.

This is one of the landmarks of old Beirut. A very well conserved and restored cathedral that blends in with the diversity and integration of Beirut. A visit is always recommended.

Extremely well done and informative You have to visit the basement and view the explanations and listen and view the video of the history of the Church and of Beirut. Beirut is not just beaches and shopping but a lot more history and culture than expected. Loved it

Orthodox is the only way to be spiritual and this venue carries history and a lot of artifacts. Go there with family and friends not mainly to pray but to try to grasp some the pain and effort put into building and decorating it

The Church is located right in the center of Beirut downtown (Solidere), in a pedestrian zone. The church is also located at the edge of a huge archaeological site. The church was badly damaged during the 1970s and was restored to former glory. Do observe the replica of the original 17th century Icon of St Georege (Mar Jaworjious in Arabic)... More
