Byblos is rich in Crusader ruins. We visit the Place des Martyrs (Martyrs’ Square) in Beirut, a statue erected in memory of the Lebanese nationalists who were hanged by the Ottomans for revolting during World War I (the statue is now riddled with bullet holes from the civil war, but is still beautiful).
Baalbeck, one of the world’s greatest historical sites is also a highlight.
An excursion to Chouf Mountains, historically the seat of Lebanon’s Emirs and relics of their rule, from houses to courtyards and palaces, still dot the region.
