St George Monastery

St George Monastery
Ancient monastery located just near to Knights’ castle, in the south edge of Syrian mountainous region. It is close to Homs city, 50 km, west of it.
Built in about 500 a.d., renovated and rebuilt many times. The old church is now in an underground location, and the newer one above it. Just last year the new museum, and the old caves of the underground structures are opened to public.
The monastery overlooks to green carpeted valleys, and neighboring also many hotels and restaurants.
