This is a beautiful, smallish cathedral. The greatest attraction for me was the archeological museum beneath the cathedral, where you can see the different layers over hundreds (thousands!) of years, and can trace the history of the cathedral through some digs and artifacts. It's small, and beautifully organized/curated.

We took a look on a wednesday at 10.50 a.m. and there was a service going on. It's beautiful and for free, so nothing to complain about. Museum down stairs shows the history of the spot in a very well designed exhibition. Entrance fee 5000 l.l./person.

A very old church, rehabilitated after the war in lebanon late nineties early 2000 . Should be visited, oh and if you like to pray during the holy week, it is divine.

Its a nice cathedral downtown in the heart of the city. It a nice place to stroll in the gardens, but more interesting churches and mosques are found in Solidier.

This beautiful old Cathedral in the heart of Beirut is not only a place for prayer. It is so much related to the history of the city and attracts believers and tourists too.
