Beirut is Finding New Hope for the Villa Mokbel, Its Forgotten Architectural Gem
Beirut's Sursock Street is known for its stunning architecture and historical mansions, with Villa Mokbel being a hidden gem on the same street. This former Sursock property dates back to 1870 and showcases a unique blend of Venetian-Florentine style with Ottoman influences. Despite suffering damage from the port explosion in 2020, there are hopes that Villa Mokbel will be restored and repurposed as a boutique hotel or venue for events, allowing people to appreciate its architectural significance and preserve Lebanon's history.
