(30 km from Amioun)
North of Hamat in the Koura
area is the picturesque Greek Orthodox convent of Kaftoon.
Turn right after leaving the north edge of Kaftoon village on
a road that winds down into the valley. The convent is a large
building set against dramatic red cliffs and surrounded by a
garden of fruit and olive trees. You can visit its little
chapel, which has part of the roof cut from the rock.
