Convent of Our Lady, Seydnaya Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
Located in the Qalamoun region, in the Anti-Lebanon foothills, the convent of Our Lady dominates the village of Seydnaya and has the appearance of a mountain citadel. Each year it draws thousands of devout visitors who come to worship at the chapel of St Mary, housing an icon of the Virgin (a copy of one supposedly painted by St Luke the Evangelist) before which pilgrims prostrate themselves. A Greek Orthodox religious community still lives here.
