"Brummana" Brummana by MM212

Brummana Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 13 photos

A charming hilltop town surrounded by pine forests, Brummana commands excellent views over the Lebanese mountains and the Mediterranean. It is mainly a Maronite Christian town dotted with numerous churches. Its proximity to Beirut (only 20 minutes by car) and its cooler climate (at 900 metres above sea level) has made it a popular summer resort for Beirutis. It is thus filled with hotels and restaurants, among them the reputed Fakhreddine, Burj al Hammam and Mounir, and supposedly some fun nightlife too. A day trip from Beirut and lunch, or a whole weekend in Brummana, definitely makes a great getaway from the city.
