Hadchit - North Lebanon
(1400m, 126km from Beirut)


This old village perched on a shelf overlooking the
Qadicha valley is on the route through Ehden to Bcharreh.

Off the main road and into the older part of town are traditional houses and streets, the typical town square and some old churches. A pathway through an old cemetery leads down to Wadi Houlat, a branch valley of the Qadisha gorge. On the left bank are the cave churches of Mar Sarkis, Mar Bohna and Mart Shmouna.

A few years ago the walls of Mart Shmouna were still completely covered with 13th century paintings. Unfortunately, a zealous donor paid to have these paintings hidden under a layer of plaster. The churches of Deir es-Salib and Mar Antonios are located on the right bank.  At Deir es-Salib you can see the faint remains of 12th-14th century Byzantine style wall paintings.
 


Getting There ...
Get on the Beirut-Tripoli highway northbound towards Chekka.  From Chekka head east passing through Amyoun, Kousba, and EhdenHadchit lies between Ehden and Bcharreh. (See North Lebanon Map)
