The Lady of Lebanon Statue and Church stand proudly atop the hills overlooking the Mediterranean Sea in Jounieh, Lebanon. The iconic statue, also known as Our Lady of Harissa, is a towering symbol of the Virgin Mary, reaching a height of 8.5 meters (28 feet) and made of bronze. It was inaugurated in 1908 and has since become a revered religious and cultural landmark in Lebanon.

Every visitor can enjoy a moment of silence around the monument and enjoy a stunning view overlooking the coast and the mediterrenean sea.

The history of the Lady of Lebanon Statue and Church dates back to the late 19th century when a group of Maronite Christians sought to honor the Virgin Mary in this picturesque location. The church was constructed to accompany the statue, and it has evolved into a place of pilgrimage and devotion for both Christians and non-Christians alike. The site offers breathtaking panoramic views of the Mediterranean, making it a serene and spiritually significant destination.

Devotees and visitors flock to the Lady of Lebanon to seek solace, offer prayers, and marvel at the exquisite artwork and architecture of the church. Pilgrims often climb the steps leading to the statue to light candles and leave tokens of their faith. This holy site serves as a testament to Lebanon’s rich religious christian heritage and its enduring cultural significance.
