Overview

Standing on a dominant hill next to the Grand Sérail building, Saint Nichan is the cathedral church of the Armenian Orthodox community of Lebanon. It was built in 1938 in the typical Armenian church architectural-style, but with some Art Déco features. It is surrounded by a small garden with good views of the Lebanese mountains. The cathedral was restored in 2004.
