Stunning church & outstanding views
May 2021 • Friends
The inhabitants of Ehden built a sanctuary dedicated to Virgin Mary, their patron, to be their fortress & refuge. The Mamlukes pulled down the fortress & the church in 1283, but the inhabitants of Ehden rebuilt it, using the stones of the ancient fortress. Then it was renovated in 1836, after a destruction that was mentioned by French traveler & poet Lamartine, when he visited the region in 1833.

Nice View

The view was really nice and the church looked nice (didn’t go inside). I would drive there if I were near by but won’t make the trip just for that.

Above clouds experience

If you have never been above clouds so here is your chance to experience and it will blow your mind.
This is one of the most astonishing places in all Lebanon and across the region.
At altitude of 1650 meters above sea level a historical Church is there called Lady of Fortress.
No words can describe what your eyes will see and your mind will experience.
Try to catch this place by sunset and i am sure you will be happy.
Recommended to visit by Sumner as it would be little cloudy.

Unique architectural building of a church, built atop of Ehden town.
The view from Saydit el Hosn is breathtaking, as you get to see all the red tile roofs of ehden beneath, as well as the different valleys and surrounding mountain tops.
