Being a primitive place, Beirut reveals enormous
historical and archaeological wonders. Among all of them, we can see major
landmarks that steal your time. However, many of the highlights are scattered
in different districts. Pigeon Rocks located in Raouché District are a natural
rock formation with arch shape, gigantic in size, and beautiful in view.
Visitors and locals will enjoy watching sunset from here. Local boats
facilitate you to ride through the arch, which is a great experience. In the
Downtown district, visitors can find the ‘Place de l'Etoile’, where the
Beirut’s oldest church is located and it is linked with a religious Museum. The
Martyr's Statue is another corner deserves a snap, located in Downtown Martyr's
Square. The lengthy river passing caves are located in the north of Beirut in
Nahr al-Kalb valley at ‘Jeita Grotto’. These caves are special as they are
sprawled with massive rock formations, colours, beautiful shapes of the
stalactites and stalagmites for 9 kilometers.
