  • This church sits just below and behind the Dany Chamoun Square. It has a beautiful setting in a large square. The stone shines in the sunlight. The interior itself, however, is nothing special.  more »

  • Old church ,so so beautiful.
  • An iconic church in the Chouf area
  • Our Lady of the Hill Maronite Church, otherwise known as “Saydet Talleh” near Beirut. Very interesting story about this church - it was built on the ruins of a pagan temple that was dedicated to the moon. According to legend, a Druze Emir saw a light coming out of the mountain. He told his soldiers to check it out and that if they saw an Islamic symbol, build a mosque. If they saw a Christian symbol, build a church. And so they dug and found a rock with a cross on it. Under that cross was a symbol of the moon and Venus. So began the construction of the church. The icon you see in my collection is the special representation of Our Lady of the Hill. It is miraculous. This church dates back to the 15th century. The Templars even had a hand in rebuilding it after an earthquake. Lots of history. Loved it
  • The priests are mean
  • Old, beautiful and historic church. Make sure you ask someone to tell the history of the church
