Lebanon

 

Once considered the Paris of the Orient, Lebanon disappeared from the tourist map at the outbreak of civil war in 1975. Currently, and gradually, is consolidating the view that not only is feasible to travel to Lebanon but also can be done without major complications. Lebanon has many attractions within its modest borders: ancient cities, relics of the Roman Empire, luxury ski centers, magnificent landscapes and examples of Islamic architecture. Also has a complex culture, and it is so huge its social and religious diversity that, according to supporters of other nations' cultural homogeneity, it would be impossible to avoid social instability. Unfortunately, in this case, Lebanon has given reason. For those interested in knowing the history of this region and to be witness of how this country is overcoming the crisis, it becomes the best time to visit.
