4.7/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
The oldest still-active church in Beirut, Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Saint George serves as the seat of the city’s Greek Orthodox Bishop. Built in the 18th century in place of the ruins of an ancient church, it was restored several times throughout the centuries and reopened in 2003, after being vandalized in the civil war. During the restorations in the 1990s, an array of artifacts were excavated from the area, ranging from the Roman and Byzantine times to relics from the Ottoman empire. Step inside to admire the frescoes and paintings of the interior, or visit the crypt where the archaeological findings are housed.

  • 黎巴嫩是难得的一个承认多种宗教的中东国家,这座东正教堂是贝鲁特规模最大的教堂,和大清真寺互相辉映,看上去比较新,内部空间很大,不过并没有像俄罗斯东正教堂一般的精致装潢,神职人员十分友好,会领着你参观,旁边有一处古遗迹可以看看
