  • It is surprised to see this statue, where she is, the cars come and go not far away, the place all around is empty or in the works, it's strange, but feels upset the country past...

  • It's a shame to see this neglected monument, on a site having been part of the history. The State should make a place of memory, or at least a place to live. The square is located between two busy roads, without crosswalks. Pedestrians cross the place without paying attention, with main preoccupation to avoid taxis. There are ancient ruins, abandoned site also.

  • A monument that endured the stakes of the Lebanese civil war, as a witness of that country that does not start. It is usually the goal of the Beirut Marathon, which is held each November.
