Beirut Things to Do: 250 reviews and 494 photos
The Lebanese Parliament is one of the buildings that faces Sahet an-Nejmeh and it is surprisingly unguarded, despite the heavy security in the entire capital. The building of the Parliament is done in what a friend told me is the traditional style of buildings from the French occupation – i.e. a mixture of French lines and traditional Ottoman and Ommayad styles that was popular in the 1920s. The Parliament building is not really all that impressive (unlike the Serail), as its façade is rather dull and looks much more like an unimportant Orthodox Church rather than the seat of government.
Address: Sahet an-Nejmeh
Directions: In the heart of downtown
