UNESCO and Italy Rehabilitate Qadisha Valley: A Triumph for Heritage Conservation


UNESCO and Italy are joining forces to restore the Qadisha Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1998. With €500,000 in funding from the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS), historic trails in Hadchit, Hasroun, and Mazraat Ennahar have been revived, alongside the restoration of monasteries like Mar Assia and Deir El-Salib, and churches like Mar Behnam, Mar Mtanios, and Mart Shmuni.
