Nejmeh Square

This centrally located square in Downtown Beirut has been recently renovated.  ‘Nejmeh’ means star, and it is so named because the six roads converging on the square resemble a star.  The highlight is the famous clock tower dating from the French Mandate.  It is one of the few historic structures that remain intact in Downtown.  Other than that, the square is pretty mundane.  You’ll naturally run across it while you’re downtown, no need to go out of your way to see it.
