Stella Maris Monetary, on the Biblical Mount Carmel

Nineteenth-century Stella Maris monetary is situated at the western edge of Mount Carmel, overlooking the Mediterranean. The name, “star of the sea,” comes from an ancient epithet for Jesus’s mother, Mary. Stella Maris Church contains a beautiful painted dome and alter over a cave, which Elijah is said to have inhabited. Take a walk through the garden to see a monument to Napoleon’s soldiers. A small museum on the site displays interesting antiques, and located across the street is a cable-car that takes visitors up the mountain for a panoramic view you don’t want to miss. The church is open to people of all faiths, at no cost to guests.
