Batroun Town, Lebanon

Batroun Town, Batroun

490 m

Batroun is located in the northern part of Lebanon and it's one of the oldest city in the world. 

The name Batroun derives from the Arabic al-Batroun, itself from the Greek, Botrys (also spelled Bothrys), which was later Latinized to Botrus. Historians believe that the Greek name of the town originates from the Phoenician word, bater, which means to cut and it refers to the maritime wall that the Phoenicians built in the sea to protect them from tidal waves.[1] Other historians[who?] believe that the name of the town is derivative of the Phoenician words, beit truna, which translates to house of the chief.

It's knows to be one of the major destination in Northern Lebanon for its beaches, night life and historic background.

The current fort was built by Emir Fakhreddine II in the 17th century to guard the route from Tripoli to Beirut.The fort is built on a long, narrow limestone rock near the Nahr el-Jawz River. Its walls are constructed with small sandstone blocks quarried from the nearby coast and built onto the edge of the limestone rock. The thickness of the walls ranges from 1.5 to 2 meters (4 to 6.5 feet). The larger limestone blocks are the only remains of an earlier structure probably built for the same defensive reason.

Our Lady of Nourieh, Lebanon

Our Lady of Nourieh, Chekka

7.6 km

The story of Our Lady of Light shrine and monastery is celebrated throughout Lebanon, a country where Christianity has existed since Jesus first evangelized in Tyre and Sidon, and therefore, Lebanon is often considered part of the “Holy Land.” Some of the first Christian communities were set up in Lebanon during the time of the apostles.

It is believed that two sailors built the shrine in the 4th century. One winter night, on a very stormy sea, the two sailors found themselves in peril. They began praying, and the Virgin appeared to them as a light and guided them gently to the shore of Theoprosopon near modern-day Chekka in North Lebanon. The grateful sailors carved a cave in the cliff and dedicated it to the Virgin Mary, and called the shrine, Our Lady of Light. A Greek Orthodox monastery was built in the 17th century.The miraculous icon of the Theotokos has been venerated for centuries for having glowed with light to attract wayward ships
