one of the most Amazing orthodox church in the middle east !!! dont forget to visit the museum under the church
I have been visiting Lebanon for the last 14 years but this is my first time visiting the Saint George Orthodox Cathedral of Beirut. It is a very beautiful church. But the extraordinary is the crypt museum that you can find just under the Church with a really small entrance fee. (2,50 euros). You do not need a guide through... More
The greek orthodox church of saint george is a beautiful house of God, and archeological ruines are available to see ruins from Roman, Byzantine, Phoenician times, very beautifully displayed.
Go to this place: apart from the ancient St George church, go downstairs: there is a very interesting press-button display below the church. You can see lit up those ruins from Roman, Byzantine, Phoenician times and you get to understand how archeologists see all those layers in ruins. Beautifully done.
relax place ( house of GOD........i enjoy my time nice people meeting me good design i wish to visit that good place many time to travell of LEBANON

I am not usually interested in religious sites, but I found this one fascinating. Much of the church and the frescos have been restored minus a couple that have bullet holes from the civil war. Definitely don't miss the underground museum with its many layers of history. It is small but very interesting.
I don't think this is interesting at all. It's just a church and not a very notable one at that. It seems that it is located near mosques maybe that's why people are rating it high. But for me it held little interest.
The church is very beautiful, elegant, in a very awesome area. The museum is in a building next to the church itself. It is very cool, interesting, organized, but what I don't like is the idea of a church having a LL 5000 price just to go see a small museum. Photography is not allowed in the church, but allowed...
