When visiting the new downtown area with all its high end shops, you must pass by this star square which has the parliament of Lebanon and the clock in its center. Nice quiet area with churches and mosques on the side.

Beautiful, but unfortunately lanimous part of Beirut downtown. The buildings are very well restorated. However many shops and even banks have been closed.

This is at the centre of beautiful Downtown. Churches, mosques and Roman ruins all nearby and many top class shops and attractions. Must see in Beirut.

There are some great restaurants here and it has a nice feel - lots of people relaxing - smoking sheesha and enjoying themselves.
