The view from up there is spectacular overlooking long stretches of beaches. Take the teleferique (cable car) up from jounieh to enjoy a great experience.

Beside its value as a christian holy site for prayer and meditation, the stunning view on Jounieh bay is worth the visit. Nested in a pine forest, we enjoy getting there by road or by cable cars. Our last visit was in June to pray in the newly renovated cathedral. It is a place dear to my heart. Recently improvements have been done: a snack along the parking serving sandwiches (not very tasty) and manakeech ( I suggest those), and most important, clean toilets!

Peaceful and comforting place to be. Amazing view. Small church is beautiful. If you come by cable car there is a very small fee to pay. It is a visit not to miss.

This is a must to see. the fun bit for me was to get on the cable cars through buildings then trees seeing the sea at the back ground while going up all the way. You get another cable car once you get almost at the top to take you right to the top of Lady Of Lebanon. The church there is very peaceful and it's another great spot to see the city from a birds eye view. the ticket is very reasonably priced once you managed to get there. The best way to move in Beirut I would say is to hire a taxi for the day, just be carful as you will have to haggle to get a good price. surprisingly you can go down as much as $30 and $ 40 of the asking price

A place that is open 24hrs a day for anyone to come pray, get away from the city or to see the most spectacular views. The grounds are very peaceful and beautiful. Our Lady sits high above and you can walk up to the top of the statue. On the bottom of the statue is a small church with seating, and around the grounds places you can light candles. I simply love it there.
