(4.4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Towering over Jounieh Bay, Churches of Harissa remain a popular pilgrimage spot. Known for the shrine dedicated to Our Lady of Lebanon, the patron saint of the country, Christians and Muslims alike flock to the scenic hilltop village to pay their respects to the Virgin Mary, whose likeness is immortalized in a massive, 8.5 m (28 ft) tall bronze statue that sits on top of the revered shrine. You can reach the village by car, or take a cable car ride, enjoying panoramic views of the bay along the way. A Maronite Christian cathedral stands adjacent to the shrine, while a number of other churches are located nearby, including a Greek Melkite basilica. By using our Jounieh trip itinerary maker, you can arrange your visit to Churches of Harissa and other attractions in Jounieh.

  • If you take a tour here comes expensive, there's an easy way to reach here. First of all, we're getting to the Charles Helou Avenue on the beach. Minibus passers by from here to Tripoli of an accessor. "Don't steal, all of them will stand in front of you," Harissa "or" enough "in Jounieh. About € 5 free, a 20 km journey upper passage to be downloaded. Looking towards the hills of the city cable car wire reaches the beach of yürüyebileceğimiz to the ground, a passing "Teleferique" will be sufficient. The only person round trip cable car fee 9000 LL, about 20 TL. He worked for 50 years, although the cable cars, and judging from the scary image of accident never happened. The most I've ever seen steep point teleferikti. Journey in a swinging cabin houses, about 6 minutes. When you leave your details immediately clean up noticed and cool weather. This is why so many houses on the hills. Hill immediately attract your attention is the colossal statue of the Virgin Mary. You can go to the beginning of the statue.
