    Brummana - Jan 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Only 4km up the road from Beit Meri is another charming hilltop town called Brummana. Unlike sleepy Beit Meri, Brummana is popular among Beirutis both in the summer and on weekends year round. As a result, the town is filled with restaurants, some renowned, and some nightlife too. When visiting Beit Meri, consider trying one of Brummana's renowned restaurants for lunch.

    This beautiful church is located on a main square in Beit Meri and is one of two major churches in town. It was built in 1910 on the ruins of an older church and dedicated to the Cretian Saint Sassine, who died during the time of Emperor Constantine. The church serves the Maronite Christian community, which makes up the majority of the inhabitants of Beit Meri.

    Located right next to the monastery of Deir el-Qalaa, the archaeological area of Beit Meri contains a few interesting ruins. Most important are the ruins of the Temple of Juno-Astarte and well-preserved mosaics from a Byzantine-period church. It also contains fallen columns and foundation walls of residential buildings. Attached are some photos. Note that anyone is free to enter the area with no guards or tickets.

    Al Jannah is not an ordinary restaurant. Its atmosphere is extraordinary.(Jannah means Heaven in Arabic) It is an outdoor restaurant in the summers and it has an indoor place for the winters.
    it has two levels,the upper level is more of a westren bar with DJ playing music,and the lower level is a middle eastren style,where you can dine and smoke the(nargilah)or(shisha),with a local singer singging Arbaic songs!

    Favorite Dish: From the middle eastren is the Hummus dip and from the westren upper level is the deep fried cheese sticks.
    Many music vedio clips were pictured there...so you might get lucky and meet some of the celebrities!
