DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:
Our Lady of ILIGE is an ancient church located in Mayfouk -Jbeil, a Maronite patriarchal seat for hundreds of years and now a national archeological site in Lebanonl. It is one of the corners of the holy triangle of Saint Charbel and Sainte Rafka and Saint Hardini. It is famous by its Honey Production since the ottoman empire.
|Our evening will start by a visit to Deir Saidet Mayfouk (1746 AD) where we will see a very old icon (that of Our Lady of Elige), the oldest Maronite icon in Lebanon, and will visit Saint Charbel cave where he used to pray, then the bus will take us to the top of the village to Osbeh village, where we will start our hike.
We will walk an easy path open to moonlight and pass by Deir Mar Geryes, a beautiful place where we can see a TANNOUR made from clay. Views are fantastic from there; Batroun and Jbeil are easily observed. The path will lead us to a very old abandoned church, that of Mar Saba.
And this time we will have manakich dinner baked on saj and roasted potatoes cooked by local villagers with hot tea. It is a great place to end the hike.
Night hikes are the best way to spend our evenings because we will benefit from the fresh cold air and the shiny moonlight away from the tension and the hot weather of summer days.
