This beautifully restored church is located next to the grand mosque and a site of pilgrimage for many Christian visitors to Lebanon. Free to access with the normal courtesies of a visit to a place of worship. Some beautiful modern stained glass windows.

I liked the interior a lot, and thought this was the most beautiful religious building in this town full of ugliness

The St. George Maronite Cathedral is a beautifull and well preserved cathedral that is worth spending some time on. The paintings and decorations are really nice and the plae is in the car-free zone. Quiet and peacefull.

Beautiful and imposing, this Maronite Catholic cathedral is beautifully decorated and reinforces Lebanon's most interesting religious pluralism by being located a few meters from the city's largest mosque. Place of peace and meditation.

Built on the scale of Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome. Fully restored and is the seat of the Maronite Church in Beirut.

I really enjoyed our visit to the Saint Georges Maronite Cathedral which is located directly next to the famous Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque on Martyr’s Square and on the edge of the new Beirut Central District.
The interior is very special as the altar is unique with four large columns and to the left a tall wooden pulpit dominates the cathedral. We were very lucky with our visit as we were the only ones in the cathedral at this time thus making the visit a very relaxed and tranquil experience.
The single exterior steeple seems to have been designed to surpass the height of the mosques four minarets! I am not sure this was designed in the reconstruction, but it appeared that the cathedral did not wish to be undersized to a mosque!
Directly next to the other side of the Saint George Maronite Cathedral are the remains of a Roman Cardo Maximus, which is very special to view and inspect.
If you are in Beirut for a short visit I strongly suggest that you spend some time in this immediate area as it is a religious show case of architectural beauty.

St George Maronite Cathedr is in Downtown Beirut, next to Mohammed Al Amin mosque.

It is great to see a mosque and cathedral next to each other. On Friday the ringing of cathedral bells is followed by the Azaan (call to prayer)

The Cathedral is very nice from the inside and well worth a visit.

The Cathedral of St. George was built between 1884 and 1894 in the center of Beirut. It was badly damaged during the civil war (1975-1990) and was looted. After the war it was restored and reopened in 2000.
