Built in 1873, the St. Elias Maronite Cathedral serves the Christian Maronite community of Aleppo. The cathedral is located in the heart of Jdeideh, the old Christian Quarter, and is one of the more prominent churches in Aleppo. Although not the largest Christian sect in the city, the Maronites are well represented and have strong ties to Lebanon. Their church is an Eastern Catholic church in full communion with the Pope.

Address: Al-Farhat Square, Jdeideh Quarter
