A map of Lebanon

Lebanon is located in the Middle East and is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea, Syria and Israel.
Beirut is the capital city and a major port. Tripoli is Lebanon's second largest city. Lebanon is a small country with a varied landscape consisting of beaches, mountains, valleys, forests and woodlands.
There are a number of World Heritage sites in Lebanon: the Phoenician cities of Byblos, Baalbek and Tyre, Qadisha Valley, known for its early Christian monasteries, and the Islamic city of Anjar built in the eighth century.
