As you enter, you'll be met with the picturesque palace courtyard, boasting a palette of sandstone colours and a quaint central fountain. Walk into the interior and you’ll find that most surfaces have been inlaid with detailed mosaics and designs, with some dating back as early as the fifth century.

  • Another must for those coming to Lebanon. This is the summer residence of the President of the Lebanese Republic. Each room has a story and a story, marbles, precious woods and fountains are everywhere. Interesting festival held every year, which unfortunately I could not see.

  • I enjoyed it a lot and it was not too busy. Only problem is that they had some work being done on their famous columns which were missed.  more »
  • Half-ruins near the accommodation. Lebanon has raised his Turkey Empire appointed Sultan's Palace. Isolated precision wood ceilings, hot and cold water faucets and endured the cultural standards of the bygone days of the Lebanon. Worth a look is.
