Valley Convent
(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.
