There are a number of amazing religious buildings of various faiths in the Harissa area. They exist very peacefully together thus allowing visitors to experience the beauty of each faiths place of worship. Worth visiting the area.

This is one of the most beautiful landmarks I have ever been to. There is a hiking trail "Darb el Sama" which takes one from the coast to this exact location. The trail starts from Sahel Alma. It's a hike that takes about 1-2 hours and is advanced due to the inclination of the mountain. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

if you are already on the top of the hill you might want to say some prayers at the churches. churches has regular masses along the week during different timings and off the masses you can go into the church to have your own prayers.

You need to visit. Unique. The area is sacred. Need to visit and praise God for the beauty of the place and the peace that it can offer for the mind and soul.

We arrived this place by taking the cable car, and it was Sunday morning, there was a service going inside. It was amazing to see the service conducted in Arabic and with Arabic style music. The church itself is a wonderful modern architecture to visit.

an exeption from my food-related review. I visited Harissa during my last stay in lebanon, and I was just positively impressed by the gathering of poeple of all sort of religions, escoecially I loved to see Christian and Muslim together, all for praying the Virgin mary Our Lady of Lebanon
