The monastery by itself is very nice and you can feel the holiness of the place in each room and step you take. However in order to get to the entrance with the traffic and tiny road and lebanese drivers, you will need to cool down before you enter the holy land, so keep in mind for the visit that... More

The road leading to it is quite dangerous, the cave is small, not much to see, only advisable to be visited during summer, they open the cave very late around 11am

It is special for any person to see but I would consider it nothing less than a privilege for every Christian to experience in life. There is a local restaurant in the... More

The valley itself is beautiful to walk through and around, but in order to actually get the most of it you kinda need a car. From Basharri it will take several hours and a lot of it being up hill, some drivers may feel sorry for you and give you a lift, but it is difficult, so plan ahead.

One of the great Natural and historical world heritage site to see in the north of Lebanon. It's the valley of saints as translated from syraic language, 1400 years of maronite Christian history and the story of their persecution throu years by all invaders, and after all this time they are still there... great to visit if you are around.

nature has endowed Lebanon with beautiful areas that stretch from the sea to the top of the mountains and down to the Bekaa. Qadisha valley deserves a visit in its own right. Amazing views all through and a walk down the valley takes you to historical churches and monasteries.

This Valley is simply beautiful -- terraced fields of fruit and olive trees, wild flowers, pictaresque stone houses and monasteries and snow covered peaks. You need a car to get here as it is about 1 1/2 - 2 hours from Beirut.
