This church will surprise you in many ways. It's an eighteenth century church that was built on top of a much earlier one from the 4th century.

We were walking downtown around noon and most of the religious places were closed but the St George Orthodox crypt was open. It is located on the side of the church and the ticket price is 5000 L.L. (around 3$ US). It is a very small exhibit with a few things to see. You also are able to view the church from underneath through a thick glass.

This Greek Orthodox Church is beautiful and well maintained. Services are fairly frequent and you can't visit during services. Even more interesting is the museum underneath the church. This museum chronicles the early history of Beirut with walls and streets exposed to view.
