Coming from the Canaanite origin of silence and/or calm, the word “Douma” manifests serenity and tranquility with all its glory in the village carrying this name.

Nestled between the fertile lands of Kfar Hilda, which is rich in ancient gems, the village of Douma is immersed in peacefulness and surrounded by gorgeous nature.

The village is known for its architectural heritage, as Douma boasts hundreds of traditional houses known as National Heritage, the Mar Doumit historic church, the rock chapel of Mar Nohra, and the old traditional souks.

Douma also has an extensive natural heritage, as it is home to the karstic rocks which connect the village to Jabal EL Qaraqif, olive trees laid out at the foot of the village, and hiking trails linking Douma to Bchaaleh, Tannourine, Arz Jaj, and Laqlouq.

During summer, Douma holds its summer festival between July and August. The village also revives craftsmanship, including carpentry and ironwork, not to mention the production of a local sweet pastry called Raha.

There are plenty of things that you can do while visiting this fascinating village, including many restaurants where you can taste amazing local food.

You can always spend the night in the hotel available there or the Beit Douma B&B, which is ranked among the top 5 finest Bed & Breakfast stays around the world.

Or have a romantic getaway at Douma Bungalows under the pine trees.

This stunning Lebanese village is a haven worth spending more than a day in. If you plan to do so, consider visiting also the nearby sites, namely the Tannourine Cedars Forest Nature Reserve and the Bsatine El Ossit waterfall.
