This is the oldest church in Beirut and you can see Hellenistic, Byzantine, and Medieval periods represented here. Lovely mosaics. Church is free. It's 5,000 LL per adult to tour the archaeological museum below.

A beautifl, restored church in the centre of Beirut with an interesting museum right under it offering you the chance to see the various layers of the church! You can see that they invested a lot in this site and took great care of it.

In the heart of downtown Beirut, juxtaposed with the Mohammad Amin Mosque, St. George Cathedral is a serenely beautiful walk back into history. Be sure to visit the museum, for a small fee.

Overwhelming! This Cathedral was totally renovated few years ago. The paintings on the ceilings and walls are so perfectly done. The huge columns are so impressive. It is a must visit place in the heart of Beirut.
