“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

This place seemed to me what paradise looks like. It's green and has monasteries clinging to the walls of the valley. There were waterfalls and flowers everywhere. At the end of the road (for cars) there is a fantastic restaurant overlooking the valley. They serve dishes made with local ingredients here and if you're up for it, some strong distilled stuff. The messes have so many dishes that I would recommend you don't go for mains.
The monasteries are well-kept and very interesting. The walking path (where we went) was also OK for kids over 5 years old. You do need to be quite fit though as some of the paths are steep.

“walks in the valley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2012

in Bcharre, overlooking the valley there is a phenician pyramid or obelisk, it is easily 2500-3000 years old. in the valley, you can find monasteries and walk/hike; there are incredible things to see like the phenician 'sphinx' in Turza, start of the valley

“the valley of the Saints”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2012

Qadisha is known for being the refugee for the maronites during many centuries where they have built monasteries , churches.. They used to live in caves cut in the rocks that u can still visit. Beside that Qadisha has panoramical magnificent view it gives you a wonderful feeling of peace... it s also a very nice area for hiking knowing that it is in the north of Lebanon close to the Cedars , during winter it is full of snow

“Beautiful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2012

Lovely site for a monestary. Beautiful setting, just too bad there is so much development on the opposite slopes. The monestary is being renovated but in a nice way.
