Visit Beit Eddine, a palace known for its elaborate design and intricate decorations, with detailed carvings adorning the interior walls. The palace was originally built in the 18th century by emir Bashir Shihab, who desired his palace to be of legendary beauty. 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. Take a moment to enjoy the surrounding scenery of mountains and lush greenery. Put Beit Eddine and other Beiteddine attractions into our Beiteddine trip itinerary builder, and watch your holiday take shape.
