Looking out over the bay of Jounieh toward Beirut, Our Lady of Lebanon attracts Christian and Muslim pilgrims from around the world. Standing atop a majestic spiral staircase/stone base, the 8 m (26.2 ft) bronze statue of the Virgin Mary encloses a monumental 100 seat-shrine located underneath. Ride the cable car to the top of the hill, located 650 m (2132.5 ft) above sea level, then climb the sloping 19th-century stairway to the base of the statue, where a panoramic view of the city rewards your efforts.

This is a great sight seeing. I would recommend taking the little trolleys to get up. It’s a nice way of getting up there without driving which may take a while because of traffic. It’s very crowded s... more »
I went up two times. One by car and the other time by cable car. The cable car is safe enough I guess. The car drive up is amazing. There is a lot of parking. You will just have to be patient. It is a very very busy place. So expect to spend some time here. Make sure you climb up to the top where Our Lady is. The views from there are great and you feel a great sense of spiritual being up there. People put locks there as promises. It is really squishy the higher you go up. There is a gift shop that can get congested. There is also a place where you can buy candles. The church design is interesting and quite out of this world looking. Definitely worth a trip both by car and by cable car. Both of the views are stunning.
Such an amazing place. It's a must see if touring Lebanon. They have cable cars you can take from Jounieh all the way up if you'd like. The views for the shrine are breathtaking. They have a small chapel under the shrine, and a huge church behind it. The gift shop also has quite a bit of variety
