What to see

Lebanon Traveler - - RELIGIOUS TOURISM -

A long prom­e­nade of ap­prox­i­mately 4,000m2 sep­a­rates the chapel and tower. The cave has been re­stored as a rock chapel and at its en­trance is a statue of a Vir­gin wait­ing in front of a well. A trail at the sanc­tu­ary il­lus­trates the bi­b­li­cal events, which ac­cord­ing to oral tra­di­tion, are said to have taken place in Le­banon. Along a path lined by rose­mary and olive trees, they are com­mem­o­rated through ste­les carved in stone. Un­der the great basil­ica, a multi-pur­pose room and hos­tel have been built. At the en­trance of the site there is space for park­ing and a shop with sou­venirs and re­li­gious items, a large cafe­te­ria and toi­lets.
