Tour: Discover the Mar Mikhael Stairs

Friday, June 13
(11:00am to 12:30pm)

Between the main street of Mar Mikhael and the area know as Jeitawi lie eight major stairs and a few other hidden ones, most of which date back to the Ottoman era. These stairs are the witnesses of how life used to be in the Beirut in the 1950's and 1960's, back when the train was still running down the coast. Today, they are forgotten elements of our heritage. In an effort to revitalize these neglected public spaces, the Design Department at A.L.B.A. (Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts) is offering guided tours to rediscover the stories and pathways hidden among those stairs.
