Saydet el Nourieh or Our Lady of Light. The story of the light that gives its name to the monastery is celebrated. It is said that two sailors were in peril on a stormy sea when the Virgin appeared to them as a light and guided them gently to the shore. In return they carved a cave in the cliff and dedicated it to the Virgin Mary. In the 17 th century a Greek Orthodox monastery was build and completed in the 19th century.
