With the history of Tripoli dating back to the 14th century BCE, it is home to the largest fortress in Lebanon (the Citadel of Raymond de Saint-Gilles), and continues to be the second largest city (behind Cairo) in Mamluk architectural heritage.
In ancient times, it was the center of a Phoenician confederation which included Tyre, Sidon and Arados, hence the name Tripoli, meaning “triple city” in Greek.
About Me: I'm seeking an individual who enjoys variety, whether it is at home or out on the town.
Someone who has good values, confidence, and a sense of humour.
Baatara Gorge Waterfall – Tannourine (map) During summer the water’s flow isn’t that strong, but it’s well worth the visit.
Make sure you keep an eye our for the signs as there is a designated place you can park and walk straight down to the cave.
Tripoli overlooks the eastern Mediterranean Sea, and it is the easternmost seaport in Lebanon.Thanks to its historical wealth, relaxed lifestyle and thriving business climate.This is a city where modern and medieval blend easily into a lively and hospitable metropolis.Be very careful when crossing the natural bridge though.
