My Photos: Lebanon -- Beirut -- Church of Saint George





Saint George Orthodox Cathedral, built in the 12th century,
on the site of the Anastasis Cathedral, circa 449 AD,
which was destroyed in a 551 AD earthquake.

 

 






The frescoes, which cover the walls of the church interior,
display multiple marks from bullets.


Below the church is a small museum,
showing partial excavation of the necropolis found here.
