  Batroun - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
According to historians, Batroun was founded by the Phoenicians on the coast some miles North of Gebal Byblos on the southern side of the bold promontory called in classic times Theoprosopon.
Another archaeological site and a crusade ruin at Batroun is the castle of Mousaylaha which is constructed on an isolated massive rock with steep sides protruding in the middle of a plain surrounded by mountains.
Batroun has been also famous, from the early twentieth century, for its lemonade which is sold by almost all food shops on main street.
