About Phoenician Wall

The Phoenicians used this wall as protection against sea storms and invaders.

Batroun is an idyllic little village and it looks like the villages in Lebanese movies. There are beautiful old buildings, thee Phoenician wall is visible along the see, little churches are well kept and it is also possible to have local fish in one of the restaurants by the see. Just outside Batroun you will also find rocks that are great spots for sunbathing and jumping into the refreshing sea at a hot day.
