Map of Lebanon

Lebanon gets its name from the mountains that rise from the coastal plain, to the east of Beirut.

Qurnat as-Sawda', in the north of the Lebanon Mountains, is the country's highest peak; at 3,083 metres above sea level.

The coast was colonised by the seafaring Phoenicians, in around 2500 BC, and Phoenicia became one of the richest and most important provinces of the Persian empire; after the Persians conquered Nebuchadnezzar II's Babylonia; in 539 BC.

Lebanon's modern development as a country can be a attributed to the cohesive polices of the French who arrived in 1920.

The French went along with the Maronite's beliefs in Mount Lebanon, and established the Lebanese Republic in 1926.

Lebanon gained full independence when the last French troops withdrew in 1946.

On April 26th, 2005 Syria officially pulled the last of their troops out of Lebanon.
