Ksara: Built during the Roman period then covered by sand for centuries, the Ksara caves were found by mistake in 1898 by the Jesuits who were looking for a wolf that was eating their chickens every night and was using the caves as a refuge. It served during the first world war as a refuge for the young Lebanese Men who did not want to be enrolled in the Ottoman army. It is now the refuge of the well known Ksara wine where thousands of the old wine bottles are preserved.

A tasting of the best wines is done during the visit.
