With the collaboration of the Municipality of Ras El Maten we are pleased to invite you to discover LaMartine Valley .

Ras el Metn is approached from Mansourieh along a road that winds through an unspoiled landscape of pine-clad hills. The village itself, visible on a high mountain ridge, holds the promise of spectacular views. From its heights (between 800 and 1,000 meters) one can also look out across the valley to the towns of Dhour Chweir, Baabdat, Broumana and Beit Mery.
This villages which have about 10,0...00 people, is notable for its sense of civic pride. It is also the birthplace of one of Lebanon's most famous modern personalities, the writer Anis Freiha.

The beautiful umbrella pines that surround the village are a source of valuable pine nuts, while olives, grapes, figs, apricots and other fruits are cultivated here as well.

A look around Ras El Metn will reveal a number of interesting sights. On a high hill stands a large serail, or government house, built by the Lamaayeen princes in 1775. The huge building later served as a high school. Although damaged in Lebanon's recent war, one can still appreciate the serail's elegant courtyard and bell tower. Restoration work is planned for the near future.


Alphonse de Lamartine (1790-1869) the famous French poet and politician lived in Lebanon during his voyage to the Moyen Orient, he lived and loved this area and got inspired by it . There are many places in Lebanon named after him like Hamana, one of them is Lamartine Valley in Ras El Metn which was the source of inspiration to some of his literature masterpieces .
