Beirut and Lebanon have been the battleground for a brutal civil war in the not too distant past. You can still see the bullet pockmarks in many walls and buildings, and many buildings still need to be repaired due to structural problems.

Therefore, under no circumstances should you trespass or otherwise go where you are not safe due to unexploded landmines amoung the rubble and unsafe buildings or stairways that may collapse.

I know because I love to take unusual photographs and a few feet this side of a wall or in that direction often make the most interesting collages. However, in Beirut this is not recommended.

Just use your common sense.
