The Jeita Grotto is a system of two separate, but interconnected, karstic limestone caves spanning an overall length of nearly 9 kilometres. In 1958, Lebanese speleologists discovered the upper galleries 60 metres above the lower cave with an access tunnel and a series of walkways. The upper galleries house the world's largest known stalactite. Jeita Grotto was one of top 14 finalists in the New 7 Wonders of Nature competition.
Our Lady of Lebanon
The Shrine of Our Lady of Lebanon in Harissa is a Marian shrine and a pilgrimage site in Lebanon.
The shrine is one of the most important shrines in the world honoring Mary, Mother of Jesus. The shrine is highlighted by a huge, 15-ton bronze statue. It is 8.5 m high, and has a diameter of five meters. The Virgin Mary stretches her hands towards Beirut.
Located 76 km from Beirut, around a 2 hour drive, the Baatara Gorge Waterfall is an extraordinary sight. It was discovered in 1952 and was fully mapped out in the 1980s, at which point it was known as the Cave of Three Bridges. To get to the site, you will need to walk 300 meters into Tannourine, this place is definitely worth the hike. The gorge has 3 natural bridges connecting it from side to side and offering an easy walk through for the adventurous tourist. In the spring, the water falls an impressive 255 meters into a natural sinkhole.
