Patriarchial Residence
(7 Km from Bsharre)

    On the southern edge of  the Qadisha valley, Diman is the summer residence of the Maronite Patriarch. The site overlooks the Monastery of Deir Qannoubin, an early seat of the Patriarchate. The imposing church has some interesting paintings by Lebanese painter Saliba Doueihy.


    From here a steep path takes you to the Qadisha River in the gorge. Another half hour brings you to the Monastery of Deir Qannoubin.
