  • Tripoli, Nabu Museum & Batroun
    Tripoli

    Tripoli is the largest city in Northern Lebanon and the second largest city in the country.
    It is famous for having the largest Crusader fortress in Lebanon—The Citadel of Raymond de Saint- Gilles—and a large amount of Mamluk architectural heritage.
    In this city you can sense the blending between the modern and medieval ages and it is known for being a lively and hospitable metropolis.
    Tripoli includes forty-five buildings and twelve mosques that were registered as historical sites (dating back to the Mamluk and Ottoman Period), along with an equal number of theological schools. In addition to that, you can find hammams which follow the classical pattern of Roman Byzantine baths and several Khans. It is also famous for its souks, where you can find various trades (tailors, jewelers, perfumers, tanners, and soap makers).

    Batroun

    Batroun is a coastal Lebanese city with an ancient Phoenician sea-wall that was originally a natural structure composed of petrified sand dunes. This wall was used by the Phoenicians as protection against sea storms and invaders during Roman times.

    Nabu Museum

    This museum is located in the North of Lebanon and is named after the Mesopotamian patron god of literacy. It has a collection of Bronze and Iron age artifacts representing Roman, Greek, Byzantine, Phoenician, Mesopotamian, and Lebanese cultures, in addition to rare manuscript and ethnographic material. There is also an extensive collection of books on art, archaeology, history, and geography in the museum.
    The main purpose of this museum is to preserve and promote the Lebanese culture.

    Our Lady of Nourieh

    Our Lady of Nourieh is a Greek Orthodox monastery that was built in the 17th century. This miraculous icon has been venerated for centuries for glowing with light to attract wayward ships.
    Nourieh is a derivative of the Arabic word "nour" meaning light. Thus, in English, the Marian shrine can be called, Our Lady of Light. Legend has it that the story behind this monastery is that two sailors built the shrine in the 4th century. One winter night when the sea was raging, the sailors found themselves in danger and started praying. Suddenly, a light appeared and guided them safely to the shore. The grateful sailors carved a cave in the cliff and dedicated it to the Virgin Mary, calling this shrine “Our lady of Light.”
