After completing their pilgrimage to Spain’s Santiago de Compostela in 2018, a group of Lebanese decided to put in place Lebanon’s first long-distance pilgrimage route, a 130km route crossing 40 villages and covering significant places and villages integral to the life of Lebanon’s patron saint, Mar Charbel.

The route will be called Darb Mar Charbel and can be completed in 7 days. It will start from Qozhaya and Beqaa Kafra in the North and will end in Bkerke. Darb Mar Charbel is a project by Darbessama that is expected to be completed in 2026.

The trail is already on the [website] along with contact information for those who would like to help or donate.
