Beirut, the beloved capital of Lebanon, is one of the oldest cities in the world. It has been inhabited for over 5,000 years.

While today it has water issues, Beirut was named for its accessible underground water reserves. Its name comes from the Phoenician “Berot”, with the Canaanite word be’erot meaning Wells, making Beirut the ancient City of Wells.

The name was carried across the world from the Middle East to Europe to the Americas. Here are over 50 cities where you’ll find streets named after Beirut:
