There are no archaeological sites inside the reserve. However,
in the village of Ehden, you can visit some historical churches
and monasteries, as well as the old souk in the historic part
of the city. For example, the Church of St. Mamas (Mar Memas)
is considered to be the first Maronite church constructed
with stones in Lebanon.
MAJOR ACTIVITIES NEARBY THE RESERVE
Visitors may want to spend the night in Ehden or one of the
other villages near the reserve. For a panoramic view of north
Lebanon, visit the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Citadel (Saydet
Al-Hosn), a modern church built in the shape of a star and
located on a summit. Visitors will also not want to miss Al-Midan,
Ehden’s historic souk characterized by traditional Lebanese
architecture and filled with cafés, patisseries, and restaurants.
