Jeita Grotto is a system of two connected limestone caverns, an upper grotto that can be explored by foot, and a lower grotto that can be discovered by a small boat.
The grotto is characterized by its stalactites and stalagmites wonderfully shaped, that can captivate anyone’s eyes!
Harissa is the place where a bronze statue of the Virgin Mary, “Our Lady of Lebanon” is standing, above 600 meters of sea level, overlooking Jounieh Bay.
Visitors can reach the statue by a stair, and preach, or just enjoy the amazing panoramic view. A cable-car ride is also a choice for anyone that is seeking to admire the wonderful view up from the sky..
