Deir al-Qamar is a small mountain village located about 20km south of Beirut, in the mountains at an altitude of 800m. The historic core is not very big but quite cute. It's basically centered around the Dany Chamoun square. Here there are a mosque, a couple of palaces and a church complex. It's primarily a Christian town, mostly Maronite with a small number of Greek Catholics.
Deir el-Qamar was the capital of Mount Lebanon between 1590 and the 18th century.
The Church of Saidet et Tallé is a Christian Maronite church dating back to the 15th century. This church has been destroyed and rebuilt or restored over the centuries.
