Description: Harissa, a statue of Our Lady of Lebanon with her arms outspread over Jounieh Bay, is one of the country's most renowned manmade landmarks. The 13-ton statue was built in France and moved to Lebanon during the 19th century.
Harissa is accessible via a new highway carved into the side of the mountain, or via the telepherique, a cable car and venicular railway that carries visitors from the Jounieh coastline 600 meters up to the mountain peak. There are two noteworthy churches on the site, a modern cathedral, and a small chapel right under the statue. A shop sells crosses and other votive souvenirs.
