There is something particular about Lebanon’s heritage houses that is little spoken about. Much has been written about their beauty, their charm, their unique architecture, their history, and their priceless cultural heritage that must be preserved.

But there is even more to them. Their presence across the country is empowering. It reflects the pride of a nation that has always been adamant to prevail through times and challenges.

They are here to claim it, and to remind us that Lebanon is more than political governments that come and go, and more than its challenging phases.

One has only to stand for a moment in front of their imposing beauty and feel the echo of their times whispering, “Resist, we are here to stay.”

Whether well-preserved, renovated, replicated, or abandoned yet standing proud like a wounded soldier, these houses of Lebanese heritage architecture are patriotic wonders, and many of them simply take our breath away.
