Old Zouk History

Situated 14 Km north of Beirut, the town of Zouk Mikhael was named in reference to a Turkmen leader who inhabited the area during the Mamluke era. It has acquired a name for itself in recent times. Its renovated old market or "souk" has boosted its touristic potential considerably. The souk's architecture has been preserved to reflect the traditional Lebanese market and craft around the 19th and 20th centuries.

Among the town's most important features is the Old Souk of Zouk, which has been rehabilitated and renovated in 1995. The souq has been transformed into a pedestrian area surrounded by arcaded shops. Some of the shops were transformed into restaurants and coffee shops, while others kept their traditional ateliers which host an annual souq (market) for traditional heritage products. In addition, the Mural of Lebanese Creators was established in the old souq, and includes the figures of 15 Lebanese personalities sculpted in stone.

Old Zouk Overview

Among Zouk Mikhael’s most famous artisanal products are its textiles woven on traditional looms, as well as its marzipan sweets made of almond and sugar dough. The town is also home to a number of old monasteries and traditional heritage houses. UNESCO chose the city of Zouk Mikhael from the Arab region as a City for Peace in 1999, honoring the city's efforts to fight deprivation, poverty, and security instability.
