Being one of the responsible field archaeologist of this place, I highly recommend you to visit the oldest standing Cathedral of Beirut and its unique archaeological crypte.

At the time you visit the Saint Georges Church for a religious visit, you can profit from its historical history that ages for more than 3 centuries.

Fascinating look in to the past. The Cathedral has a glass floor that shows the foundations of the past buildings back to the Hellenistic period.

on the heart of reconstructed old town, and image of light linking hundreds years of history of this unfortunate city. The cathedral was refurbished after the end of civil war and is a symbol of harmony between religions as it stands among mosques and other Christian temples. Saint George is supposed to have killed the dragon in the bay of... More

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
