Batroun is a coastal city located in the north of Lebanon, about 50 kilometers north of the capital, Beirut. The city has a rich history that dates back to ancient times, with evidence of human settlement in the area dating back to the Phoenician period. Batroun is known for its well-preserved historic architecture, including traditional Lebanese houses with red-tile roofs and white-washed walls.
The city is also famous for its picturesque harbor, which is one of the oldest in the country and is home to a number of fishing boats and yachts. Batroun has a long tradition of fishing, and the city's harbor is still an important hub for local fishermen today. Fishing has been an important part of the local economy in Batroun for centuries, and many families in the area have been involved in the industry for generations.
In addition to its archaeological, historical and religious importance, Batroun is known for its delicious fresh lemonade and appetizing fish. The city is also a large seaside resort, its position near the sea has made it a major destination for various water activities lovers. Batroun has also maintained a traditional industry, which is that of sponges.
Batroun's historic architecture and charming old-world streets provide a wealth of opportunities for photographers interested in capturing the city's unique character. The best time to photograph in Batroun is early in the morning or late in the afternoon, when the light is soft and the shadows are long. I remember that day the sunset was really nice and the colors where amazing. despite that the shutter on my camera was stuck on one speed, i managed to get some very nice photos.
my personal experiences and memories i have of Batroun, such as the people i met, the food i tasted, or the sights i saw, have created a deep and lasting emotional connection to the city, making it my favorite village in Lebanon so far.
