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.

Our Lady Of Lebanon is a popular place to visit for millions of faithful both Christians and Muslims from all over the world. The location is stunning. “Peace” is the word to describe the mood.
