A view from the Saint Charbel Church

A view from the back of the Saint Charbel Church.

Youssef Antoun Makhlouf joined the Lebanese Maronite Order in 1851 and by becoming a monk he took the name Charbel, after a Christian Martyr in Antioch from the 2nd century. The church is a site for pilgrims from Christian and Muslim faiths in Lebanon.

As you walk around the back of the Church you get some spectacular views of the mountainous terrain Lebanon is famous for. Great place to take a few minutes to reflect on the history of the place.
