Pigeon Rock Beirut Lebanon

Pigeon Rock in Beirut, Lebanon

A stunning set of rocks welcome you to the city of Beirut.  Pigeons’ Rock (also known as the Rock of Raouché) is located at Beirut’s western-most tip, the two huge rock formations stand like gigantic sentinels to the city.  Locals love to walk along the corniche (seaside promenade) at any time of day, but during sunset it is especially busy.  Thanks to terrible traffic (typical in Beirut) I just about missed this spectacular sunset.

However, I never did learn why it’s called Pigeon Rock…if anyone has any explanation, let me know!
