You’ll see the yellow cable cars of the teleferique overhead when you drive north from Beirut. Operating since 1965, the teleferique takes passengers from Jounieh to the Church of Our Lady of Lebanon in Harissa, some 650 meters up. One can also take the funicular to the site, where commanding views of the bay and of Beirut are to be found alongside the Melkite Greek Catholic Basilica of St. Paul and the enormous statue of the Virgin Mary, which is plainly visible from the road below. The site also features restaurants and a playground.
Tickets cost 9,000 LL.
During Peak Season the Teleferique welcomes the visitors from 10 AM to 10 PM.
The Off-Peak Season working hours are from 10 AM to 6 PM.
