This is a historic souk(shopping area) that was rebuilt after the Lebanese war during the 80's.The origional architecture was kept so it ended up as a mix between the orgional historic architecture and teh new trendy shopping places. many famous coffee shops and restaurants have branches there

When in started it was an adorable place to walk and discover Beirut, now traffic is everywhere. Despite everything, you can have a walk in the evening and enjoy it.

Solidere was rebuilt following the destruction of Beirut during the war, the place is nice and clean, the historical image is well conserved although in some places the old ruins should have been put more in value. Recommended to have a walk and dine in one of the many restaurants available.

It is quite impossible to describe down-town Beirut to someone that has never been there. It is even more difficult to do so to someone who has only heard about war and destruction when Beirut was ever mentioned. Solidere is one of those places that have to be seen.
