Beit El Dine Palace, Beiteddine

A Lebanon trip isn’t complete without a visit to the Beit El Dine palace. Built in the 19th century, it’s absolutely an architecture masterpiece. Whether you’re a history buff or a photography aficionado, it will take your breath away!

Converted to a museum, the public can now enjoy the beauty of the Beit El Dine palace. Although it’s the Lebanese president’s summer residence, its doors stay open all year long. Some parts close to the public when the president is present. It’s just another reason why spring, in my opinion, is the best time to visit Lebanon.

No matter how big you are, the Beit El Dine palace will make you feel very, very small. Huge courtyards and mighty entrances with glorious doors welcome you to the palace. You’ll get lost in the labyrinth of rooms that transport you from one space to another.

Intricate details throughout show an unbelievable dedication to the art of architecture. Don’t keep your eyes low, up is where the real magic lies. The ceilings, covered in complex wood panels are a magnificent work of art.

The color stained glass windows in the Hareem’s (women) quarter illuminate the rooms with the most beautiful rainbow of colors.

After you’re done exploring every nook of the palace, head down to the gardens to enjoy a fresh breeze of air and stunning mosaic and gorgeous views of the nearby villages.

    What gorgeous photos of this breathtakingly beautiful palace, WOW! I love the fact that it’s open to the public as a museum and that the president stays there seasonally, I’ve never heard of such a notable and historic place being open for people to enter and explore the same place a president stays, even if he’s not there at the time of the openings, cool! The architecture is absolutely gorgeous. I’ve told you this before, but I truly wish to visit Lebanon someday. My mom has quite a few friends and I just adore the food and overall culture, so beautiful! Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having a great start to your week so far!

    PS: I adore that skirt!

    I won’t lie, Lebanon isn’t somewhere that has really been on my travel to-do list, I want to visit as many places as I can through the years so I’m sure it would have popped up eventually, but after reading this post it might have to be bumped up the list. It looks beautiful!
