Architecture in Lebanon was greatly influenced by the civilizations that once roamed the land, from its first inhabitants the Phoenicians to the invading empires, such as the Byzantines and Romans, the Mamluks, the Crusaders, the Ottomans, and eventually the French.
Hidden beyond the modern homes and contemporary architecture, you can still find traces and elements of Tripoli’s long history reflected in an amalgam of identities of various cultures and civilizations.
These buildings, in particular, are fascinating sights across Tripoli, where people value life, tradition, art, colors, and nature.
