Though the view from the top was stunning, I remember more the great devotion I saw there. Many praying with their heads on the column. Our guide told us Mary protects Lebanon from ISIS.

Our driver took us to this location and we purchased the round trip cable car ride. When we got to the top of the hill, we alighted and walked the remaining part to the statue. There were some pretty gardens and a new pathway was being built. At the base of the Lady of Harissa statue are some beautiful pine... More

Came here today as part of Nakhal tour. 20 minutes was enough. The views over the bay are very nice and then up the view of the Mary statue. I didn't climb it as I didn't have the energy.once girl in the group went up but said it was so busy she didn't enjoy it. I'm sure the views were... More

One of a kind place for praying and admiring the breathtaking view. A must visit when in Lebanon. Make sure to visit the souvenir shop. Use the cable car to go there, it would be a great experience. Take a lotttt of pictures.

The shrine and sanctuary is situated in an absolutely gorgeous location in Harissa, a town overlooking Junieah, Lebanon. The statue sits atop a small church and there are nice trees and benches around the church for reflection and prayer. You can walk up the spiral staircase around the church to the top and see wonderful views of the sea and... More

The road already that takes you to climb over there gives a nice coup d oeil, and when you arrive the vue is amazing.Peaceful place where everybody mixes, christians and muslims,to pray. You can go there with the telepherique also. Enjoy the visit of the different chappels and the souvenir boutique.

This was my second visit to Harissa . It is a beautiful church with an enormous statue of Virgin Mary overlooking Lebanon as a guardian mother. I loved climbing up the stairs while praying and calling my supplication. Harissa fills you up with peace. You can use both cables or car , both rides are amazing. Cables close at 4.30pm.

Went to this magnificent church at night during the Christmas period. Brilliant views of Jounieh from both the church grounds and from the top of the statue itself. A visit to the old church under the statue is special in itself. During the Christmas his time it gets very busy.
