..... ....The Baths are perhaps the single most famous part of the palace of Beiteddine. They are patterned after the old Roman fashion. You pass from cold rooms to rooms that get hotter and hotter and steamier rooms where masseurs knead the dirt out and rooms where the sweat pours of you. The baths are still in working order, although they are not normally operating. You can walk through the different rooms, however, and you may be intrigued to notice that they are lit by small semicircular windows set into the domed ceilings. If you look carefully, you see that they resemble nothing so much as a whole collection of bottlends! Even today, Beiteddine is used as a palace. Here, the President of the Republic has an official residence-which is why certain parts of the palace are closed of to the visitor. But everything of significance is on view. Taste the simple grandeur of Beiteddine. A couple of hours will be enough at Beiteddine. If the architecture really gets to you, do the valley a little to Deir el-Kamar, where you will find more of the same, this time in town form. Beiteddine is up the valley from the coastal town of Damour, which is about fifteen miles south of Beirut. You might combine a trip to Beiteddine with a drive to Sidon. Or you might continue up the valley to Barouk, and join the main Beirut-Damascus road at Mdeirj..... ....
