Lebanon used to be known as the “Switzerland of the East” due to the diversity and financial power that it enjoyed.
The capital city Beirut, used to be called the “Paris of the Middle East’ because it was at one time a thriving city with a rich culture and attracted tourists from all over the world. When the war was over, extensive efforts were made to redevelop the national infrastructure and the failing economy.
It is widely believed that Jesus Christ performed his first miracle here.
