The Qadisha Valley

The Qadisha Valley lies to the north of Beirut and is truly a sight to behold.  Monasteries and a hermitage or two cling to the mountainsides, mummies have been found in hidden crevices, monks have sought refuge in this hallowed space throughout the centuries.  To be among the pine and cedar on a blue bird day was a welcome reprieve from the city noise and bustleā€¦
