Simply beautiful. quite a drive to this location, beautiful mountain views on the way there, make sure you stop to take in the scenery. wonderful building, ornate marble, wonderful stainded glass windows. While you are here, it is worth the extra 30 mins drive up to the ceder reserve in the chouff mountains

This is a must see of Lebanon, there is so much history there. One of my favorites of the visit was the number of ancient greek mosiacs on display and each section you are greeted by a guide. We even got to tour the presidents summer home quarters. I would highly recommend!

Beit Eddine Palace looks unassuming from the outside but once you've traversed the large courtyard and entered the inner court, you'll be stunned by the tranquility and beauty of this place. The palace is in a beautiful setting overlooking the lush Chouf Mountains. But if that weren't enough the classical architecture is wonderful and stunning. The façade is well preserved... More

Magnificent palace in the heart of the Chouf. take a guide who will take you back in the history of this famous palace and its Emir. Very nice Mosaic, Turkish baths and diwans of the Emir. With an impressive courtyard. Another must do when in Lebanon. In the summer they have the Beittedine festival who brings famous singers.

I love history. This was a mind blower for me. The beauty and artwork dating so many years back is unimaginable, marble, mosaic fancy doors and ceilings. How these kings lived so long ago, you need to see it for yourself

A beautiful, historic place in the mountains. Get a guide to tell you about the history and details. The castle is worth a visit and the driving from Beirut.

The exterior looks like any Arabic sandstone building, but the interior is so beautiful, with elaborate wood carvings on the walls and ceilings and fancy mosaic tiles on walls and floors. I think it's more spectacular than India's Taj Mahal.
