Cedars of God

In Bcharre, you can also find the natural reserve of the original and most ancient cedar trees of Lebanon. The Cedar tree is the symbol of pride of Lebanon, standing in the middle of its flag. Many civilizations like Phoenicians, Egyptians, Romans and Turks used the cedar trees for their trade, making paper and building their ships. The Cedars are also mentioned in the Bible, holding significant religious importance.


As early as 9000 BC, Baalbek passed through many civilizations: Mesopotamian, Roman, Christian and Islamic worship.
