The Monastery of Saint Joseph, Saint RAFQA’s Tomb, lies at 350 meters altitude on the plateau known as ad-Dahr at the foot of Mount Jrabta, in the Batroun area, North Lebanon.

One of the nuns who stand out in the history of the monastery was Sister RAFQA (1832-1914), who bore terrible suffering with patience and resignation. After her death, a number of miracles occurred through her intercession and the earth of her Tomb has become a source of divine grace and many  remarkable cures.

The monastery was transformed into a sanctuary known throughout the world, particularly when Pope John Paul II (1978…) proclaimed the beatification of Sister RAFQA and proposed her for the veneration of the Church, on November 17, 1985, and her Canonization on June 10, 2001.
