Description: The most picturesque town in Southern Lebanon, Jezzine is most famed for its glorious waterfalls that cascade down from a height of 40 meters. Lying 22 kilometers east of Sidon, the town rises on the Tumat Niha hills at the heart of lush pine forests and sweeping vineyards. Visitors to the town are often awed by the spectacular, ever-changing vistas of red-roofed villages nestled among greenery and gold, ochre, emerald, and white peaks around Jezzine.
Historical attractions include the famed Fakhreddine Grotto, where the Lebanese Emir of the same name found refuge after fleeing from Ottoman persecution, in addition to various noteworthy sites such as the St. Antoine convent built in 1774, the Serail built in 1898, and the Farid Serhal palace, a stunning abode featuring Eastern architectural touches and a vast collection of valuable antiques.

On the road that links Jezzine to Sidon stand the towns of Roum and Homsyeh, both of which are surrounded by evergreen pine forests and sweeping vineyards. Anan, famed for its Byzantine sites and blue-green artificial lake, also lies nearby.
Lebaa and Kfar Jarra are two towns in the vicinity where visitors can view one of the oldest churches in the region: St. John the Baptist church, first built in the 16th century and restored in 1755. The church was partially destroyed by Israeli bombs in 1989 and is still being restored by the Lebanese government.
South of Jezzine lie the towns of Kfarhouna, Aramta, Rihan, Aychiyeh, and Jermoq, all of which are nestled among splendid natural scenery. West of Aramta, the towns of Milkh, Lwayzeh, and Jernaya are noted summer resorts popular for their unspoiled settings and congenial climate.
