“Stella Maris” (from Latin – “Star of the Sea”) is a monastic complex built on the NW edge of the Carmel mountain, above Haifa , by the Carmelites after failing to aquire the plot of Elijah’s Cave nearby.
The current monastery and church was completed in 1836. The church is believed to be above a cave where Elisha, Elijah, and the “Holy Family” hid.
The Stella Maris Monastery (romana) or the Monastery of Our Lady of Mount Carmel for monks is a 19th-century Discalced Carmelite monastery located on the slopes of Mount Carmel in Haifa, Israel. Another Carmelite monastery of the same name (Monastère Notre-Dame-du-Mont-Carmel in French) is reserved for nuns and is located higher up on Mount Carmel.
