 BSHARRE


 

Bsharreh, 1400 meters high, commands a prime position at the head of the Qadisha valley just below the famous Cedars of Lebanon. In Crusader times it was known as one of the fiefs of the country of Tripoli. Bsharreh can be reached from Tripoli or through Ehden or through the Koura district starting at Chekka on the coast. This is the hometown of Gibran Khalil Gibran (1883-1931) the Lebanese poet and painter. A museum near his place of burial in the rock-cut monastery of Mar Sarkis should not be missed. Open daily in winter from 9 am to 5 pm except Mondays, and every day during the summer.The journey to Bsharre and the Cedars passes through some of Lebanon's most spectacular scenery. The mountain road winds through the countryside where red-tile roofed houses cling precariously to the cliffs, and a patchwork of vineyards and olive groves stretch out into the lush valleys.
