Palace of Prince Bechir, built approx. 1800. Due to the ongoing Beit Eddine festival lots of visitors, mainly Lebanese were there. A must see is the Hammam and the former stables where there are 6-7th century AD mosaics are to be found. Entry fee is affordable. Beautiful environment Closed on Mondays

Really loved this place. The mixture of art and history is evenly balanced and the views are amazing. You can spend a lot of time here. Tip - Pack a small lunch it eat in the gardens and take it all in.

While many of the rooms were fenced off, you can still take a look at the doorway. Also, had a militaryman not mentioned that a mosaic displace was there, we would have completely overlooked it! Lots of great photo ops

This is everything a summer palace should be; corners in which to relax and remain cool and places in which to continue with meetings and impress visitors. It has a great air of calm, not least because of the soft colour of the stone and the light interiors. Do not miss the mosaic museum, which is bound to impress even... More

This Palace seems nothing special from outside, but as soon as you pass through the main gate you change immediately your mind. The main gate leads you directly into the court yard which is really beautiful. You have the palace in front of you and you can just admire its wonders, like the gate which is finely decorated, the external... More

Beit Eddine is a historic and beautiful castle. Larger than it looks from the outside, I particularly enjoyed seeing the mosaics displayed in the palatial former stables.

I went here a couple years back and this visit was even better. The grounds themselves are beautiful, but also make sure to go the rooms themselves (on the upper and lower levels). Good for ages 10 and up. Though we did have smaller children with us and they enjoyed running around the vast area.
