Beiteddine And Baalback Tour

Beiteddine: A small city in Chouf that hosts the Beiteddine Palace which was built by the emir’s 3 sons: Qassim, Khalil, and Amine; and the Beiteddine Festival. Today Emir Khalil's palace is used as the Serail of Beiteddine, the seat of local administration. As for the palace of Emir Amine, which dominates the Beiteddine complex; it was beautifully restored and converted into a luxury hotel by the Ministry of Tourism.

The entrance to the central section of the palace, Dar El Wousta, is from a double stairway at the far western end of the courtyard. From this point on, the impressive but austere appearance of the outside court and buildings gives way to the delightful architecture featuring beautiful arcades, Mandaloun balconies, fountains, facades, rooms with carved and painted cedar wood embellished with Arab calligraphy, antique furniture, inlaid marble, and fine mosaics. These rooms served as offices and reception salons.

At the far end of this courtyard rise the private apartments, Dar el Harim, composed of a large and richly decorated façade, the Upper Harem, the selamlik, the Lower Harem, and the kitchens.

Baalback: Lebanon's greatest Roman treasure can be counted among the wonders of the ancient world. The largest and most noble Roman temples ever built, they are also among the best preserved. Baalbek’s monuments suffered from theft, war, and earthquakes, as well as from numerous medieval additions.

Ksara: Ksara is a wine company in Bekaa Valley Lebanon. Starting out in 1857 by the local members of the Christian community, Ksara developed the first dry wine in Lebanon. Ksara wine is most popular in Lebanon, but due to a large Lebanese Diaspora all over the world, it can be found and purchased in many different countries.
