Hamra, Beirut Overview

Situated in West Beirut, Hamra is the one of the bustling districts, known for its entertainment and shopping galore.

Hamra is known to be the home to intellectual activity in Beirut even during the Civil War. This neighbourhood is a blend of religious and ethnical backgrounds, illustrated by presence of churches and mosques. The renowned American University of Beirut, on Bliss Street is an interesting place to visit. Established in 1860s by American Missionaries, the University stood through the Civil War, unscathed. Stroll through the pristine campus to get a fair idea about what the city was like before the Civil War. Sanayeh Gardens have been there since the Ottoman reign and ideal for a leisure stroll or conversation.
