... Discover Lebanon

From Discover Lebanon website

For the early authors of the Bible coming in from the desert, Lebanon was a paradise of forests and gardens, "of fabulous springs of water, a land flowing with milk and honey." Olive trees, plantains, orange-trees, vines, apple-trees, fig-trees, almond-trees, cherry-trees, strawberry plants, and great expanses of forests of evergreen oaks, larches, Mediterranean pines, and above all giant cedars celebrated by the poets: "To what shall I compare your greatness? Surely, to a cedar of Lebanon with noble branches, thickset needles and lofty trunk...It was the envy of every tree in Eden, in the garden of God" (Ezekiel XXXI).

"May I not go across and see this prosperous land beyond the Jordan, this prosperous country of hills, and Lebanon?" (Deuteronomy III, 25, Moses on Mount Nebo); "Come from Lebanon, my promised bride, come from Lebanon, come on your way" (Canticle of the Canticles).

Also visit their photo gallery. I especially like the pictures of Old Lebanon.
