Despite being a major Christian praying site...Lady Of Harissa is visited by people from multiple religious background. That is due to the beauty and the serenity of the environment! After all the statue is positioned on the top of the highest mountain facing the Bay of Jounieh giving it a great view and a perfectly calm atmosphere for meditation.

In a muslim-majority, there is something unique and exotic about witnessing pious members of the Christian community out in pilgrimage to what is ultimately a religious site. Lovely views from the top (to be enjoyed regardless of your faith) and a nice sense of community, this is a good attraction just north of Beirut.

Lovely place with breathtaking view. You can sea the mountains and the sea. When you arrive Junieh you can take the teleferik or a taxi to go up. There is some cafeterias there and restrooms. It is really amazing an calming experience.

Our Lady of Harissa is a bronze statue situated on top of a rather small church. She is actually made out of bronze but is painted white. A very impressive monument and can be viewed up close via the staircase that runs around the church up to the very top where she is located. The other reason for visiting this... More

Though the view from the top was stunning, I remember more the great devotion I saw there. Many praying with their heads on the column. Our guide told us Mary protects Lebanon from ISIS.

Our driver took us to this location and we purchased the round trip cable car ride. When we got to the top of the hill, we alighted and walked the remaining part to the statue. There were some pretty gardens and a new pathway was being built. At the base of the Lady of Harissa statue are some beautiful pine... More

Came here today as part of Nakhal tour. 20 minutes was enough. The views over the bay are very nice and then up the view of the Mary statue. I didn't climb it as I didn't have the energy.once girl in the group went up but said it was so busy she didn't enjoy it. I'm sure the views were... More
