The Cedars of God

An ancient grove of cedars, the oldest in Lebanon, makes a beautiful site.

Reviewed By halcatra - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

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!

Hadchit

Reviewed By Lebanon98

The village was full of hospitable people, and the sites were remarkable. One must visit St Elias Monastery, and go hiking in the valley below.

Ezzeddine Hammam

Reviewed By halcatra - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

It is well preserved Hammam. It does not work anymore, but you can visit it free of charge. It seems like it could work again without any difficulty, it is all preserved in a very good condition. Look at the ceilings and domes - they are fascinating!
