The Qozhaya Monastery, or the Monastery of Saint Anthony the Great, has special significance for both Christians and Muslims. Besides the Monastery, you will get to see the cave, the museum, the library, and other important sites. Later, you will explore The “Cedars of the Lord” reserve, which constitutes what remains of Lebanon’s once vast cedar forest mentioned in the Old Testament. Last, you will visit the famous Gibran Khalil Gibran Museum. It was formerly a hermitage and monastery purchased by Gibran. He is entombed there, and the museum houses many of his paintings and drawings and personal effects.
