The Beirut Municipal Building counts as one of the finest examples of Beiruti architecture from the early 20th century. The attractive building elegantly combines architectural elements of French and Islamic styles. It was designed in 1927 by the renowned Beiruti Architect, Youssef Aftimos. After suffering from severe damage during the civil war, the building has been restored to its former glory. It occupies a prominent location in the Beirut Central District (Downtown/Solidère).

Address: Rue Weygand, Beirut Central District (downtown)
