Nejmeh Square & Maarad Street: Beirut, Lebanon
The 1930s Nejmeh area was inspired by Place de l’Etoile in Paris. Among its radial streets is the arcaded, pedestrian Maarad Street. Young and old meet in Nejmeh Square, marked by its clock tower designed by Mardiros Altounian. The historic St George Greek-Orthodox and St Elie Greek-Catholic cathedrals, the Parliament House and the deputies’ new office building complete the square.
An early 20th-century eclectic architecture combines classical and Islamic revivalism with Art Nouveau and Art Deco. Together with businesses, banks and professional offices, the area is especially vibrant with shops, art and handicrafts galleries, and a large choice of sidewalk cafés, restaurants, bars and clubs.
Thank you! What a kind thing to say.
