Once quite isolated due to a bad road, Deir al-Baramouse now has more than 100 monks in residence, plus six modern churches in addition to its restored medieval fortress (not open to the public). There are also remnants of 13th-century wall frescos in its oldest church, the Church of the Virgin Mary.
