Joun, Chouf district

On a green spot next to Joun, where Lady Ester Astanhope lived, in the Chouf in south central Lebanon, stands the Greek Catholic Monastery of our Savior on a piece of land offered by the Sheikhs of the Joumblat family. It consists of a red tiled roof, a large building superimposed with a clock tower, and with a fountain in an open court. Its church is a masterpiece and it contains rare manuscripts and a collection of precious icons and other objects used for worship.
