  • There is an interesting story behind this castle. The entrance fee was a little pricy but we found it worth it. Lots of depiction of lebanese culture.  more »
  • What a great story, especially when you hear it from Moussa himself. it is a must visit place, all hand made by the owner himself, A true story of a livening dreamer.  more »
  • Moussa Castle resides in a beautiful area of the Chouf Mountains about 1 hour outside of Beirut. If you are fortunate, you may be able to meet Moussa himself. It seems Moussa had dreams of building a ...  more »

  • The concept is great. A guy builds a castle with his bare hands to impress the girl he loved. "Violins queue in" but it has become so commercial and all kind of rubbish are displayed on the wall. Walking in doesn't feel like it should. A guy walks up and demands 10$ per person and provides no ticket. You just shove your way through fake and sheepish artifacts and 3 minutes in you can't wait to get out.
  • Moussa Castle is a dream come true of a young boy "Moussa" who was mocked by his teacher as he saw a castle that Moussa drew on a piece of paper! Moussa was determined to build his castle... And as years passed by, he built his beautiful castle with his own hands!
  • An exceptional place. A wonderful example of personal determination and persistence. A combination of engineering and art. Worthwhile visiting at all times I have been extremely lucky to meet the founder and the builder of the castle and its contents, who is still living inside it, welcoming every morning the visitors, and signing his book about this unique experience, despite his old age in his ninth decade.
  • Disappointing. Not much I can say about this place other than the fact that plenty of Arabs love visiting this place when they should actually be visiting real historical sites that are close by. The guy spent a lot of time building his little castle and has a huge gun collection but of no significant Lebanese historical value. I guess it’s good if you have nothing else to do on a Sunday.
  • It's Nice to visit Such places to know more about lebanese local culture.
