    What to Expect
    Tripoli

    Tripoli 85 kilometers north of Beirut, has a special character all its own. Thanks to its historical wealth, relaxed lifestyle and thriving business climate, this is a city where modern and medieval blend easily into a lively and hospitable metropolis. Known as the capital of the North, Tripoli is Lebanon’s second largest city.

    Forty-five buildings in the city, many dating from the 14th century, have been registered as historical sites. Twelve mosques from Mamluke and Ottoman times have survived along with an equal number of “madrassas” or theological schools. Secular buildings include the “hammam” or the bathing-house, which followed the classical pattern of Roman-Byzantine baths, and the “khan” or caravansary. The souks, together with the “khans”, form an agglomeration of various trades where tailors, jewelers, perfumers, tanners and soap-makers work in surroundings that have changed very little over the last 500 years.

    Batroun

    A coastal Lebanese city, located 50 km north of the capital Beirut, and 29 km south of Tripoli. The town boasts historic churches from Roman Catholicism and Greek Orthodox, it is also a major beach resort (knowing that Batroun is one of the cleanest rock and pebble beaches in Lebanon) with a vibrant nightlife that includes pubs and nightclubs. Citrus groves surround Batroun, and the town has been famous (from the early twentieth century) for its fresh lemonade sold at the cafés and restaurants on its main street.

    There is also the ancient Phoenician sea wall in Batroun was originally a natural structure composed of petrified sand dunes. It was reinforced gradually by the Phoenicians with rocks, and the wall as it stands today took its present shape in the first century BC. The Phoenicians used this wall as protection against sea storms and invaders, while during Roman times it again functioned as a quarry.

     

     

     

    Our Lady of Nourieh

    Our Lady of Nourieh, Saydet el Nourieh in Arabic, is a Marian shrine. Nourieh is a derivative of the Arabic word, nour, meaning light. Thus, in English, the Marian shrine can be called, Our Lady of Light.

    It is a Greek Orthodox monastery was built in the 17th century. The miraculous icon has been venerated for centuries for having glowed with light to attract wayward ships.

    The shrine is a popular Christian pilgrimage site in Lebanon, the tourists and pilgrims alike enjoy the beautiful view of the bay from atop.
