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, a small museum 
shows the partial excavation of a necropolis found here.
