Damour

1
Damour is a Lebanese Christian town that is 24km south of Beirut. The name of the town is derived from the name of the Phoenician god Damoros who symbolized immortality . Damour also remained the capital of Mount Lebanon for three Centuries.GeographyThe city is located in one of the few flat areas of the Lebanese coast. It is built to the north of the river, the ancient Tamyrus, which bears its name on a dune overlooking the Mediterranean. It is surrounded by plantations of bananas and vegetable crops. It has an area of 10.1km2. The Beirut-Tyre Highway separates the plantations. Now dismantled, the track is a stopover.ChurchesNow, there exist 6 churches in Damour, of which Notre-Dame de Damour and St Élias are the biggest. We also find three other chapels, including Sainte Thècle, St Michel, which was the first church in Damour, St Maroun under reconstruction and St Joseph. These 6 churches are all Maronite Churches. Before the Lebanese Civil War, Damour had another Catholic Church, Savior's Church.TourismBecause Damour is one of the few cities of the Lebanese coast having a sand beach, and since it is ten minutes from Beirut, Damour attracts tourists and especially water sports enthusiasts. Thus several restaurants, coffees and snacks are located along the beach. There are also a few restaurants at the edges of the Damour river.
Damour is in Mount Lebanon Governorate. When using our Lebanon day trip planning website to make an itinerary online, Damour holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
