This holy gorge is filled with ancient monasteries and hermitages carved into its cliffs.
It is a great place to visit in Lebanon. It shows that the country does not consist of only archeological sites but has also great mountains. There are a lot of walking paths, churches and convents of all the religions in the country, picnic spots - a lot to do and see. If you are in Lebanon for a couple of days, it is definitely a must.

The mosque is best visited with a guide. It is a moving place to see, especially as it is a dynamic, living place of worship. The simplicity and the architecture made be glad to have had the opportunity to visit it several times. I recommend seeing this place and other with someone who loves Tripoli and who is able to bring the city and its attractions to lfe.

Tripoli has definitely the best souks in Lebanon. A lot of traditional products to buy with a really good prices! One of the main products which was produced and sold here in the past were soaps, very nice one made of olive, with amazing scents.

An ancient grove of cedars, the oldest in Lebanon, makes a beautiful site.
It is one of five Unesco sites in Lebanon. The Cedars have couple of thousands of years - they are really impressive! In the summer season you can walk around the forest. In winter there is far too much snow and you can see them from outside. It is a shame though it does not change the fact they are still impressively beautiful! There are a lot of souvenir shops around. Some shop assistants are very pushy and it's better to avoid them, but there are some calm and friendly ones as well. You can get nice things with a very good price. We bought magnets for 1 dollar each from an elderly ill gentleman - he was super charming!

At the very beginning of the qadisha valley it is one of two monastery accessible by car (the other one is deir st antonios qoshaya) it’s one of the ancient monastery built in the rocks and between the mountains. It’s also special because of the st vierge chaplets that appeared on the rocks. It has sheltered Christian monastic communities for many centuries. And it has welcomed several priests who chosed to escape their lives for prayers amd lived their entire life in it. And very lately “abouna yacoub” who was able to do miracles while still alive. ( you can visit his tomb and the cave where he was living)

This fort is strategically located at an obvious access point. Often times, an antique fort seems to loose it's sense of place and purpose. Not so with this fort. It's obvious how important it was. Standing atop a lone rocky outcrop, it's worthwhile to climb to the top for great views.

The Tannourine Cedar Forest Nature Reserve created by virtue of Law No. 9 on February 25, 1999. The reserve is managed by a committee in cooperation with the Ministry of Environment. The reserve protects the largest and most dense cedar forest of cedar in Lebanon (625ha). The cedars accounts for more than 80% of the total number of trees exceed 2,500,000 trees. Other trees that can be found are oaks, junipers and maples living all together. The unique geography and topography of the forest protected the forest from human exploitation. Since 2006, the reserve has been declared an "important bird area (IBA). The reserve constitutes an ecological and scientific niche of plant and animal biodiversity
A good place to visit. The Tannourine Cedar forest is the biggest in Lebanon. I enjoyed my visit and recommend it for those who love nature.

It is one of many similar beautiful churches around Lebanon. It is nicely located close to the harbour. If you walk around a little bit, you may catch very nice views on the facade from there. The entrance is free of charge. Worth visiting if you are in Al Batroun.
