Description: The Qadisha valley holds a significant role among the world’s early Christian monastic settlements. Its aged monasteries stand in striking positions within its rugged landscape. The remains of Lebanon’s great cedar forests rest alongside the site; in antiquity they were greatly cherished for the construction of immense religious buildings. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.

  The Kadisha Valley (also known as Qadisha Valley, Wadi Qadisha, Ouadi Qadisha, or وادي قاديشا in Arabic) is located in Northern Lebanon. The valley is a deep gorge created by the river, Kadisha, that is also known with the name of Nahr Abu Ali when it reaches Tripoli, Lebanon. The most scenic section of the valley is stretched for approximately twenty kilometers between Bsharri (بشري), the hometown of Kahlil Gibran, and Tourza (طورزا). --Wikipedia.
