Qadisha Valley

The Sacred Valley is in itself an Invitation to the forgetfulnes of self, to meditation, and to Prayer. In the Sacred Valley, the Maronites heard the Gospel and Lived by it. The Caves in the Valley became the retreats of hermits devoted to the inner life of union with the creator. The Sacred Valley is in itself an Invitation to the forgetfulness of self, to meditation, and to prayer.”

Nested in between Bcharreh and Tourza, Wadi Qadisha is compared exactly to a profound gorge, concealing an exceptional vegetation, with steep sides of parallel stratums, a land with a view full of contrasts where the arid planes of Qornet Es-sawda open on the Greenland of the nearby valleys where cedars, that live for long centuries, leave the place for green oak trees, juniper, and Mediterranean shrubs: the whole is crossed with a river that flow down: “Naher Qadisha”. The water of the small nearby valleys runs down in its flow, and whenever out of the valley go through Tripoli reaching the sea.
This river gave the region its title “the Saint Valley”. In fact, the name Qadisha shows in his Semitic roots the “Saint concept”.

85 km far from Beirut and 18 km from Tripoli, the valley spreads out from Kousba and is divided later into two branches starting from Tourza. Each branch holds the name of a monastery. The first, Wadi Qozhaya reachs Ehden and the second, Wadi Qannoubine, covers Hadath El-jebbe in the south to and up in the Cedars. More
