Beautiful place, worth driving for

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.

It is an amusing place to spend 2 hours during the tour , the old walls and floors made with a marble arts is amazing . The level of colors and hand quality is rare to find anywhere else

A beautiful palace that overlooks the valley and the mountains that surround it. It is extremely well preserved and includes furniture and artifacts from a historical time in Lebanon. The gardens and the mosaic display are also spectacular!

This palace has a range of Middle eastern influences. We were visiting in the morning when there were no tour groups. The architecture, the furnishings, the bath house and the mosaic exhibition were all beautiful. Our guide's stories of the Emir and his exile added to the visit.

We visited the magnificent display of mosaics which we enjoyed very much. We also visited the rest of the palace and were happy to find that we could take photographs. Visiting Beit Eddine is a must.

This palace is so colorful and fun to see. It has lots of water fountains, There is a gentleman that will explain all the room in the palace. The bath tubs are interesting to say the least.
