Dedicated to the founder of the Maronite sect, Église Saint-Maron (Knisset Mar Maroun in Arabic), lies at the edge Gemmeyzé and Saifi Village. It was likely built in the late 19th century using the traditional stone architecture of the area. The beautiful interior, with its use of ablaq (i.e. bi-coloured) arches, is reminiscent of Moorish and Pisan architecture. A rather impressive crystal chandelier illuminates the centre of the nave.

Address: Rue Mar Maroun, Gemmeyzé
