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.
