An impressive building
Great Serallo is one of the most impressive monuments in Beirut, both in terms of importance and grandeur. It is located in the city centre in a slightly elevated position, so it appears to be dominating the rest of Beirut. Surrounded by armed soldiers, the construction dates back to the late nineteenth century and is open to visitors, although it is one of the things that we missed on this trip. To get there, you'll have to go to Al Omari, then turn left a few hundred metres past the building.
