There is an interesting story behind this castle. The entrance fee was a little pricy but we found it worth it. Lots of depiction of lebanese culture.

Moussa Castle resides in a beautiful area of the Chouf Mountains about 1 hour outside of Beirut. If you are fortunate, you may be able to meet Moussa himself. It seems Moussa had dreams of building a castle during his boyhood and was able to...More

Castle is nothing to brag about nor is the story of the man who built. Staff was stand offish and the bathroom was filthy and stinking of very bad odor. Would not recommend.

Not ancient nor old...They claim it is a hand built castle with scenes showcasing old Lebanese life. You can give it a look but entry is not cheap and you will not be amazed.

Nice place to visit especially that it is all hand made by one person and it has so many archaic armor and other stuff
