Interesting experience
Aug 2019
We drove down into the Qadisha Valley and parked the car soon after dirt track began. It was then an hour and a half walk to the Qannoubine Monastery, with all our worldly possessions in small rucksacks - a reminder that we need very little for every day life!

Our bedroom felt deep underground, like living in an old ..... monastery! It was clean, with twin beds, space to hang clothes and a small table. Loo and wash facilities are communal, there is a basic shower, and the water is hot. We understood we had to bring our own food, so we had taken filled rolls: breakfast cereal was provided. Drinking water is available at the monastery.

The rhythm of Christian life here seems to ebb and flow. There was a notice about a prayer meeting in the Chapel at 8am, but I was the only person who turned up. I rejoiced to pray to the Lord of Heaven and Earth, including this beautiful spot, whose Name I also own.

Wadi/deir qannoubin is a relaxing and religious place! It shows the beauty of the lebanese mountain side ! It's your ideal place to take pictures. There's a cave when priests used to exorcist.
You can also see and talk to a priest that lived there for more than 80 years !

We’ve arrived here after a long hike but it was really worth it!
The monastery is very old looking at the sacred valley if Qadisha. Usually, people bring food for the nuns who return their gesture by great hospitality.

If Quadisha - Quannoubin
May 2018 • Couples
If you plane trip to Quadisha Valley, Deir Quannoubin is obligatory. It is the hardest monastery to reach in the valley, but the way will reward all your efforts. First, you have to go deep into the valley. You can walk through beatiful valley, along mountains creek or take the car taxi-like. Don't worry, probably it will arrive to the goal. The monastery is very old, from IV century, and has very reach history. Location is very picturesque. Mummy of patriarch could be the attraction. Reserve half of the day - and I am sure you will be content.

Deep in the valley, you will find the original home of the Maronite patriarch, where Christianity survived the oppression of conquering foreigners.

Deir Qannoubine served as a fortress palace for the Maronite Patriarchs from the 15th to the 19th centuries. The monastery can be reached by foot from Blawza or Diman
