Lebanon is home to several stunning towns and villages along its borders, however, one of them stands out with all its glory!
Located in Northern Lebanon, the town of Bcharre is the only remaining and preserved original “Cedars of God” (Cedrus libani), and is the birthplace of the world-famous poet, painter, and sculptor Gibran Khalil Gibran.
Carrying a Syriac name, originally “Beit Shary” meaning “begin” or “strength and stability,” Bcharre was previously a Phoenician village and a place where Cedar wood was exploited during antiquity.
With 26 towns and villages located within the Bcharre district, and rising to around 1400m in North Lebanon, the town of Bcharre boasts a jaw-dropping and majestic nature especially in the Winter season as it turns into a Winter Wonderland and a major ski destination.
When visiting Bcharre, people get immersed in its serene religious heritage, since the town is home to numerous churches, including the Saydet Bcharre church, the Mar Mikhaël church, the Mar Youssef convent, as well as the monastery of Mar Lichaa, dating back to the medieval times.
