Description: The Shouf's most noteworthy attraction is Beiteddine, a grandiose 19th-century palace built by Emir Bechir el-Chehab II, who ruled Mount Lebanon for over half a century. A stunning example of 19th century Lebanese architecture, Beiteddine was designed to blend into its natural surroundings. The relatively somber exterior is offset by verdant trees and tumbling terraced gardens. After entering through an intricately designed gateway, visitors walk into a vast courtyard with arcades on three of its sides, and a grandiose view of green valleys and forests on the fourth side.
Inside, there are guest quarters, workers' and soldiers' quarters, as well as the emir's sumptuous private rooms and his spectacular bathrooms. In 1943, the year of Lebanon’,,,,,s independence, the palace became the summer residence of the country's president.
In addition, Beiteddine offers interesting museums and lush gardens.
