Tripoli Citadel

Crowning the city, the Citadel of Tripoli, also known as the Citadel of Raymond de Saint-Gilles, is a monumental fortress with a story to tell. This imposing structure dates back to the 12th century and has stood sentinel over Tripoli through the ages. Its walls and towers have seen the ebb and flow of empires, and walking through its gates is like stepping back in time. The Citadel offers not just a historical journey, but also a panoramic view of the city from its ramparts, which is nothing short of breathtaking.

Mina Islands

Just off the coast of Tripoli, the Mina Islands beckon as a serene escape from the city. These small islands, also known as the Palm Islands, are a natural haven, with sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters. The largest of the three, Palm Island, is a designated nature reserve, home to endangered loggerhead turtles and a myriad of bird species. Whether you’re looking to picnic on the beach, snorkel through the azure waters, or simply bask in the beauty of nature, the Mina Islands are a must-visit.

Rachid Karami International Fair

Step into an architectural wonder - the Rachid Karami International Fair. Designed by the renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, this site was envisioned as a permanent international fairground. Though it remains unfinished due to Lebanon's civil war, the fairground stands as an icon of modernist architecture. Its sweeping curves and bold structures are a tribute to the vision of a futuristic world, and today, it serves as a captivating space for cultural events and exhibitions.

Churches & Mosques

Tripoli’s rich cultural tapestry is woven with threads of diverse religious heritage. The city’s mosques and churches stand as testament to its multicultural identity. Marvel at the majestic Mansouri Great Mosque, built during the Mamluk era, and experience the spiritual ambiance within its ancient walls. Just a stone's throw away, the historic Church Mar Maroun showcases the city’s Christian heritage with its stunning architecture. These sacred spaces are not just places of worship but pillars of Tripoli’s diverse cultural fabric.

The station has become an unlikely cultural space, often hosting events and art installations, as well as attracting photographers and history enthusiasts. This hauntingly beautiful site is a poignant reminder of the passage of time.
