One of the most peaceful spots in Akkar, the old town, has a Phoenician fortress and a network of underground tombs, and a monastery from the Byzantine-era, and more.
In 2016, this village was voted Lebanon’s favorite in a poll made by L’Orient Le Jour in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism.
The quiet village of Al Qubbayat is the biggest Christian village in Akkar and is one of Lebanon’s oldest towns. It has over 25 churches, covents, and monasteries. The village holds Qubbayat festivals ever summer.
