Bcharre, also written as Bsharri, is a district located in the North Governorate with 26 towns and villages. Its picturesque mountainous landscape makes it a dream for photographers and tourists.
Here are some things you should know about this majestic place:
#1 Qadisha Valley
Bcharre is at the heart of the sacred Qadisha Valley, also called the Valley of The Saints. The magnificent valley was carved by a river known as the Qadisha River or NahrAbu Ali. The term Qadisha, or Kadisha, means holy, which brings us to our next fact.
The legendary celebrity and humanitarian, founder of the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Dany Thomas was born in Michigan (1912) to Lebanese parents from Bsharre, Margaret Tawq and Charbel Yaacoub Keirouz, who emigrated to the United States for work.
