Lebanese architecture at its best!

Beit Chabab pronounced "Beit Chabéb" is a mountain village 24 km north of Beirut, in Lebanon. It is the site of Lebanon's only bell foundry. The bells of Beit Chabab are sold to Christian communities in Lebanon and abroad.

Emigrants from Beit Chabab to the USA built the town of Youngstown in Ohio and named it after their original village in Mount Lebanon.

Beit Chabab in Arabic translated to English is Youngstown - even though originally, its name comes from Syriac, meaning "house of the neighbour".

The mountain village is famous for its big number of old typical Lebanese houses. Square houses with red tiles rooftops and stone walls - which is a Lebanese architecture signature, are all over this picturesque town.

This mountain village is also known for pottery, weaving, and textile production, that is why it has always been significantly built and populated.

A large number of old houses have been, or are in the process of being, renovated. They are a part of our heritage and should be preserved and treated with respect.

The view from the village is also amazing, as the mountains and the sky form a beautiful landscape.
