Lebanon is not a mere country; it is a “message”! It is the crossroad of cultures, religions and civilizations.
It is from our territory that emerged one of the most important elements of the documentary heritage, presenting a universal interest, which is the Phoenician alphabet.
It is from our shores that sailed vessels loaded with everything that could be traded or sold, and have assured the quasi-monopoly of the Mediterranean commerce for centuries.
