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.

Ancient Beirut is the most beautiful version of this city. This church has gone through so many wars and earthquakes and aesthetic transformation. Inside is so beautiful but downstairs is the charm ! Do not miss on visiting the museum ! Beautiful, just beautiful ! So much history in a 30 minutes tour on where used to be ancient churches.

Beautifully restored old cathedral, damaged in Lebanon's civil war (from the 80s?) Most old wall murals fully restored, however they chose to leave just 2 or 3 with the bullet holes still visible in the sacred depictions, surely to allow all to reflect on the folly of war. Right in the heart of the city center.

Great restoration of the cathedral. Wall designs amazing. Make sure you go to the museum under the church. Good exhibit. Make sure you watch video and also see original wall paintings. You may have to ask at the reception desk.
