  • Caves de Ksara Winery Tour

    Zahle Things to Do

    We thought it might be interesting while staying in Zahle to do a winery tour of the Caves de Ksara. During the medieval period the site was once home to a fortified palace where the name comes from (Ksara is derived from Ksar which is the Arabic word for palace). Vineyards were planted in the late 17th/early 18th century and in 1857 Jesuit Fathers...

    Harisa Favorites

    Supposedly the lady in the black pants and jacket is the famous singer Majida Al-Roumi, who sings wonderful Fairouzian style music (although I am more familiar with Fairouz's music than her).

The cable car ride itself is hair-raising as it brings you up to dizzying heights as it climbs the steep mountain. The view of Jounieh bay is simply amazing.
