Has­roun is of­ten called “the Rose of the Moun­tain” which can be at­trib­uted to the many red-tiled roofs that color the green fo­liage sur­round­ing it. A beau­ti­ful vil­lage in Le­banon’s north­ern re­gion, Has­roun re­minds vis­i­tors of a dif­fer­ent time, with tra­di­tional stone houses and low-rise build­ings. The most com­mon home you’ll find in Has­roun is the typ­i­cal Le­banese “cen­tral-hall” style house, a two-story build­ing with arched win­dows and high ceil­ings, seam­lessly com­bin­ing the nat­u­ral views out­side with the struc­ture. Take your cam­era for a tour to dis­cover the vil­lage’s beau­ti­ful ar­chi­tec­ture.
