Discover Beit ed Dine site Lebanon

Thirty miles from Beirut, in the Chouf Mountains, there is Beit ed-Dine, one of the must-see sites in Lebanon. Here, you will find an elegant Moorish Palace built the previous century by Emir Bechir. Declared an historic monument, the structure, which is the summer residence of the Lebanese presidents, has been renovated. You can admire the sumptuous marble and sculpted wood-decorated lounges, the Turkish bath and the Byzantine Mosaic Museum where there are some very beautiful earthenware objects excavated from the Byzantine Church of Jiye. The palace also boasts a museum dedicated to the Druze chief, Kamal Joumblatt.
