DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:
This time our trip is different; we are going to the sea coast to watch the wonderful summer sunset, but where? Its Ras El-Shaq’aa.
Will start the hike by a visit to Deir Saydet el Nourieh in Hamat. A walk to the sanctuary Mar Semaan Monastery located on the steep cliff overlooking the sea is a must to see. The track is not hard; the walk will be about 2,30 hrs.
A track with narrow street, partially asphalted but among a lot of trees, will take you to “Saidet El Horshieh” located on the steep cliff (Rass el Shakaa) overlooking the sea. Stony Phoenician steps will take you down to the shore (Hannnouch), its historical monuments, and archeological site, where will walk among the old tunnels train and enjoy the fresh breeze of the sea.
From there will take the bus to Batroun, to visit the historic “St. Stephan’s Cathedral”. There walking in the old Souk, will go to the “Phoenician fortress and wall” and visit “Our Lady of the Sea” to finish our walk at “Makaad el Mir” by the sea where we will take some magical photos.
As usual, we will end this night’s adventure with a cozy gathering around a drink at Hilmi’s House, its Lemonade Drink prepared by local habitants.
This sunset hike must not be missed. It will imprint unforgettable memories of a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
