Resort 20 km)
Broumana, which lies on a hilltop overlooking the sea,
combines the charms of a traditional Lebanese summer town with
big city variety.
Here you'll find a number of old
houses dating from the time of the Abillama Emirs in the 18th
and the 19th centuries, while north of the village stands the
huge Maronite monastery of Deir Mar Chaaya, built in 1700. An
international tennis tournament takes place each summer
at the Broummana High School, a Quaker institution.
